I am an artist and fine art photographer. I was lucky in that I discovered this passion early and have had the opportunity to do what I love my entire life. I love Baltimore but have spent enough time living outside of it that it is not a love without comparison. I don’t kill bugs except roaches and mosquitos. I want to retire to an airstream trailer and travel the country eating in diners and drinking in dive bars. I don’t want to sell my art in galleries and become famous but would rather do craft fairs and street festivals where I can see the people who look at my art and talk to the people who buy it. I would rather buy art supplies than new shoes. I read a ton and am a news junkie. I enjoy discussing politics, religion, art, current world events and current life events. Most of my friends are female. I can't help but rub Ethiopian bread on my face at least once every time I eat it (before I put the food on it) I play a lot of pool, like to go duckpin bowling, eat crabs by the bay at sunset and drink a lot of cheap beer and expensive scotch. I’ve lived in Baltimore most of my life but spent 7 years in NYC. I have traveled all over this country and a few others and like to take the unbeaten path. I studied photography, religion, literature and art history at Sarah Lawrence College. I worked in a comic book store in the 90’s. I used to have purple hair and still have a few tattoos. I played soccer and lacrosse in high school until I discovered girls and art. I am very close with my family and have dinner with my parents at least once a week. I have lived life a little on the wild side but never got into too much trouble. I don’t have a criminal record. I like the outdoors. I would rather spend 40 minutes walking to work than 10 minutes driving. I love art shows, live music, street festivals and drinking outside in the sun. I wore large women’s glasses before Bono. On Sundays I like going to the farmers market, come home and make omelets before going back to bed. I was a lifeguard and bartender for 10 years. I live in Hampden. I like The Charcuterie and The Bloody Bucket equally but Frazier’s is my favorite spot. I like burlesque but I don’t like strip clubs. I’ve taught high school photography.
