As a working artist, it can be a constant battle between unchallenged freedom of expression and doing what you need to do to survive and put food on the table. Artist and designer Kendrick Daye has successfully found a way to bridge this divide, and I’m glad to have a chance to talk with him about how he manages that balance in the city that never sleeps.

We talked about Kendrick’s vibrant mixed media collage style and he shared where his inspiration comes from for his work. We also talked about what his time was like as a student at Morehouse, and how those experiences shaped him into the artist he is today. Kendrick wants his work to inspire others to do their own thing, and at this rate, I think he’s well on his way to make that happen!

“If there’s one thing I want people to know, it’s that computer science is accessible by everyone.” When Dr. James H. Hill told me that, I had a feeling this was going to be a pretty interesting interview. Dr. Hill is currently an associate professor of computer science at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses and serves as co-director of their Software Engineering and Distributed Systems research group.

We started off with Dr. Hill’s backstory and how he got into computer science, and from there he walks us through his work at IUPUI and some of the current projects he’s overseeing and researching. Dr. Hill and I also spoke about the current government administration’s focus on computer science curriculum and what that means for educators and students. It’s a great interview, and I’m always glad to get the chance to talk with a fellow Morehouse alum. Enjoy!

This week’s conversation is with one of my closest and dearest friends, Dr. Christopher Charles Stewart. Christopher is an assistant professor of computer science at The Ohio State University. He also leads the ReRout Lab, a program that uses computer systems to broaden participation in computer science and build real systems that people use. He’s also a recipient of the prestigious NSF Career Award! Way to go, Chris!

We talked about his research over at OSU with cloud computing systems, “greening as a service”, and how to increase diversity in the field of computer science.
