My professional life is filled with these awesome animals. I've been a zoo keeper since 2001 and have worked with a wide variety of animals. For the last 13 years I've been working with Rhinos and I truly enjoy my job. For more info on Rhinos check them out here!
I've been taking photos ever since my parents put my old Olympus Om-1 in my hands. Growing up I worked in 35mm and over time have made the switch to digital. I currently use a Canon 7D Mark II and a Canon 6D (my first full frame!) I also recently acquired my first L-series lens.
My mother is a quilter and taught me the basics. Since then I have worked on my sewing skills and have broadened to costumes, fashion and craft sewing. There is a wonderful cosplay community out there and we celebrate our geek-ery together.
I have been exceptionally fortunate to have a family that instilled a love of travel from early childhood. I've been to the four corners of the US as well as visits to Europe and Africa. Wanderlust is in my blood and I look forward to the next time my steps lead me away from home.
