He reflected on his experience saying, “she really inspired me to experiment with my work and helped me to discover the kind of art I am passionate about making.” 

He attributes his interest in art as a major to that senior art seminar class he took in high school saying, “I’ve been interested in art ever since I was little, but my senior art seminar class in high school is what made me sure I wanted to pursue it long term.”
