In less than 48 hours, I will be at the capital of the world, the Big Apple, the Concrete Jungle where dreams are made of where there's nothing you can't do. As a spontaneous decision, my friend and I decided we wanted to go to New York this summer. Neither of us had any internships, … Continue reading Nervous excitement
Nothing looks better on photos than colored powder and happy people. Last October I volunteered to photograph the annual JB5K, raising awareness for the disappearance and murder of Jill Behrman 13 years ago.
