Hi! My name is Esti Shapiro (they/them or she/her) and I am an MA candidate in the Visual and Critical Studies program at SAIC. I grew up in Denver but spent six years studying and practicing architecture in Boston (specifically, the lovely gayborhood of Jamaica Plain) which I also consider home. I love spending time with my friends, and value queer community/chosen family deeply. I also have the best companion I could ever ask for in a 6ish year old rescue mutt named Frankie.
