High School: Hastings High

College and Major: Central Community College-Hastings, Photography

Life Before the Tribune: Hastings Aquacourt-I was a lifeguard. I know that makes me sound like a professional lounger with a great tan, but it's a lot of work. That job description should include babysitting, first aid, and bodily fluid clean up.

Favorite color: Red

Favorite food: Cheesecake

Favorite (workday) drink: Peach tea

If you won the lottery what would you do? Strap my kayak to the top of my vehicle and go on an adventure.

Do you need glasses to read? Nope

Your Super power? The ability to catch bugs out of the air as they fly by.

Grrr: Pictures or art work that are hanging crooked.

Wish from a Genie: Can I have more wishes?

Best thing ever: Having a job that requires very little math. Okay, maybe that's not the best EVER, but it's right up there.


I remember many years back when my mom handed over her fancy camera and let me go. I spent plenty of time finding new angles from which to shoot every flower in the neighborhood. I got the film developed. I then earned myself a trip to the eye doctor. I've since learned how to manually focus a camera on subjects besides flowers. Now I spend my days (and many nights) traveling around the Tribland learning new things, meeting new people and taking photos.
