Bio

Photographer with a background in illustration and design, I've had an interesting and colorful working life from photographing unit stills for films, researching various media for publication, to spending one summer goose wrangling (no geese where harmed in their relocation). During this, our time of covid, I have been busy making time lapse videos, sculpting items for shoots and growing my own lions mane mushrooms while listening to Creative Morning Field Trips and Ted Talks. Gregarious and energetic by nature, I love to exchange concepts and ideas with anyone over a cup of coffee.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
