That's a funny accent you've got there!
Well, that's because I'm not originally a local. I do try my hardest to blend in while being a contributing member of my community since 2008, but sometimes I can't help but show my northern habits (like putting cheese on pretty much every dinner item).
I spent my entire youth in Wisconsin. We had the sun in the summer, the snow in the winter, and just about every comfort food you can imagine. In 2008, I moved to Gainesville and by 2013, I completed my Bachelors degree in Animal Biology from the University of Florida. That's right! Not anything remotely close to professional photography. I intended to pursue a career in veterinary medicine! I worked for many years after that in a specialty, referral based clinic. I don't know much about fleas, ticks, and fixing, but rather a great deal on orthopedic, ophthalmic and other specialty medicines.
Those dreams and memories pale in comparison to the amazing days I now enjoy. I stumbled upon the love of my life a year after I graduated. Ask me, when we meet, about how he rode in like a prince on a white horse (true story!). Fast forward a few years, and we now have two beautiful children, which you need only ask, and I'll herald you with their latest troublemaking. They must take after their mom!
