My other writing includes analytical essays and novels, two of which - excerpted here - are unpublished.
A Conveyance of Rationality or a Connection to an Irrational World?
An analytical essay
With their beautiful but short lifespan, flowers were a common theme for 17th century Flemish paintings. But, Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder’s Flowers in a Glass Vase subverts those reminders of inevitable death and, instead, offers viewers access to a world of light, color, and perpetual life.
In May 2015, this essay won Stanford's Geballe Prize for Writing which honors student poetry or prose related to one of the works at Stanford University's Cantor Arts Center.
The Riveter: A Novel
A unpublished novel
The lessons you learn in your first corporate job include: how to deal with friction with your colleagues, how to maintain a good relationship with your manager, and where to stand when you’re supposed to have a meeting with your boss, but his prior appointment is still in his office, talking away. Should you knock and announce you’re waiting? Should you stand awkwardly outside his office and hope he sees you? Should you go back to your desk, wait for his meeting to end, and potentially be accused of not showing up for your meeting on time?
The Riveter: A Novel is a slice-of-life story that follows Rosie, its achingly self-aware protagonist, at her first post-grad job at the Carrell Hardware Headquarters - and her first time experiencing the anxiety, challenges, drama, humor, and relationships that comes when working in a corporate office.
An unpublished novel
