I read, I write, I make things

Hi, I'm Akinlolu. I’m a New Jersey based Artist, Writer & Product Designer. I work on various visual designs, write about music, people and other things, write poetry, work on website content and information architectures, cook innovative (vegitarian) recipies spun out of thin air, and ocassionally work the marketing/social media manager role. My creative practice spans photography, mixed media, collage and illustration. I sleep upwards of 7 hours a day because my body needs it.

A Year In Review

Editorial - President Trump has not been an impressive president, at least not in my view from this past year. For one, he is not the kind who has shown keenness to uphold peace amongst his people. Aside from certain cases where he has chosen to grab all attention for himself, or to hit back against individuals who have “betrayed” him, time and time again, he has chosen to take party sides in important policy discussions regardless of the possible outcomes of the issue.

20 Minutes with Dr. Fleischer

Interview - How is your fall semester so far? It’s been interesting and busy, I am teaching five classes, and uh – so it’s a lot… but I think NJIT students are the best (laughs). I am just flattering you – but I really think very highly of them. Where did you go to school? My undergrad… Well, I will tell you. My undergrad was Brooklyn college, graduate was New York University and Columbia. You grew up in New York also?

What Does Global Warming Taste Like?

"Climate change is real." "Relatively speaking, industrial farming is half-a-disaster, although very much essential for feeding future generations," and "our daily diet choices have an actual impact on the environment." All these statements have a high level of truth to them and are probably not new revelations to individuals generally conscious of environmental issues. Yet, most people are not fully aware of the effects of the choices they make concerning their diets.
