For All The Original JMP Photography Fans Out There!

As you can tell by the URL, I started this blog back when I was a photographer. And while I have been lately focused with more literal narratives, I will always love to take pictures. Thanks to the Shivering Snivels campaign and my Shadow Backers, I was able to invest in a smart phone recently (finally!).


My phone feels very smart!

So you will all be happy to know I will be picking up photography not just as employment anymore, but as a hobby too!

you will see portfolio work like this ~



Or you may see silly things like these :}

The First (of many) Author Interviews

This weekend

I met up with The Boredom Break crew and filmed a Shivering Snivels segment! BoredomBreak is a great series of Web shows reviewing and discussing the latest, and greatest, in “nerd” and young adult entertainment. Hayley Katherine Briggs, my interviewer, and the entire team were professional and delightful! 

Stick around till the end for a little PG-13 material ;] or don’t!
