"I live a sweet and simple life just outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in a little house with my husband, Jake, and our dog, Coal.
I originally went to school for photography, which I love, but got burnt out on doing it commercially. I still photograph often, but only personal work, which consists mostly of 35mm and instant film documentary work. I now manage, Lantern Rose, a tattoo shop owned by some of my best friends. It’s a pretty great job; I basically get paid to ride my motorcycle in and hangout with my friends all day. No complaints from me!
Western Pennsylvania has a rich heritage of blue collar living. We’re proud to work for what we have and celebrate life by spending time with our family and friends. I’ve got it pretty good here in Appalachia!"
