About: Ashton Prigge

I'm a second-year undergraduate student at UCLA currently studying art history. After taking Professor Sharon Gerstel’s Byzantine art seminar, I have been completely captivated by the power and splendor of the Byzantine Empire. Outside of academia, I adore my morning coffee and a leisurely brunch.
