Brief Biographical Sketch:

I'm a big fan of Kanye West! I have taken a DeCal (semester-long, student-run courses here at Berkeley) on his artistry, which inspired me to teach this class at Splash. I will also be teaching the Kanye DeCal next semester, so my Splash class is an abridged version of that! Taking a class about Kanye West was not what I had expected to do during my first semester in college, but it gave me a great appreciation for an artist that I did not know much about, and whose music now heavily populates my playlists. In the end, my goal is that anyone who takes my class leaves with a similar appreciation for one of the most important artists of the last two decades.
