THE SHORT VERSION
I was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee. I am the “black sheep” of my family. (Obviously!) I’m an alumna of Columbia College in Chicago. I’m 99.9% sure I am supposed to go back to Chicago and spend more time there, even though Memphis will always have my heart. I am such a city girl it hurts. Don’t get me wrong, I do like wide open spaces *cue Dixie Chicks song*, but the city will always win with me.
THE LONG VERSION
Animals are my favorite. Seriously, when I tell you to let me meet them I’m not kidding.
I love breakfast food and sushi. Who am I kidding, I just love food period.
I wear A LOT of black. My hair color changes quite often.
Art is and will always be a huge passion of mine. I love art of every medium.
I miss shooting film in college and the smell of fixer.
I love chick flicks that make you cry. I’m an easy crier. I cry a lot.
Record stores? Yes please. Vinyl is love.
Cold weather is my favorite ever. I am so hot natured it’s scary.
I can’t reiterate enough how much music means to me.
Unplugged weddings are a must. PLEASE have one.
I am not a huge phone talker! I do love texting though.
If I could travel back in time I totally would. The decade I would choose would be way too difficult though.
I’m an avid online shopper and it’s become a problem.
I always wanted to be a journalist, but decided to take the photo route thanks to working on the yearbook in high school.

STUFF I LIKE
Other than throwing smoke bombs and capturing life's weird moments, I also find joy in cool bands, dive bars, city-life (especially Chicago), animals of all kinds, and of course, tattoos.
