I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at

Frederick Coombs was an American artist, eccentric, and one of the pioneers of photography. He sometimes thought he was George Washington.
