"As machines become more and more efficient and perfect, so it will become clear that imperfection is the greatness of man."
I have two cats. One is very fat, the other is very skinny.
If it's not 75 degrees, I am cold.
My favorite movie is The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
My older sister and I have the same birthday (but we're not twins).
I can almost guarantee that I will not have the same hair cut or color if you see me more than once in life.
I'm incredibly clumsy.
I'm always 10 minutes early in fear of being late.
I hate grocery shopping more than anything else.
Eating is one of my few hobbies.
I’ve always had a creative soul, but couldn’t quite find my medium. I couldn’t draw, wasn’t very good at dancing, definitely couldn’t sing, and always came up short on crafts. When I was around 13, I found the amazing world of web design. You didn’t need to draw- everything could be done on the computer, and my bookworm brain loved sifting through lines and lines of code trying to figure out what it all meant and how it worked together.
The more interested I became in web and graphic design, the more I found myself needing photos to create the designs I had in my head. When I got my first job at 16, the first thing I bought with my paychecks was a digital camera: an 8 megapixel Kodak. Ahhh yisss, I was flying high.
The next year I graduated High School and got a new job at Best Buy. I was now in college for Graphic Design and was able to chose photography classes as some of my electives.

I quickly talked myself into getting my first DSLR camera (with the help of my co-workers), and started teaching myself how to shoot in manual mode right way. My friends started asking me to take photos of them, and then people started offering to pay me to take photos of them (what?! of course!). Eventually I started Carried Away Studios, and here we are today. I still take a few Graphic Design jobs here and there, but photography now holds my heart.
