'Interesting' Facts
1.  I'm not much of a people person - I'd rather be off with the animals, photographing, or reading.
2.  In elementary school, I was the resident dinosaur, cetacean, and equine nerd.
3.  Although ambidextrous, I prefer to write with my left hand.
4.  My parent's 15 year-old cat taught me to hiss and growl before I could talk.
5.  I sleep best next to the helicopters.  
6.  My grandparents refused to get horses, so my sister and I compromised and rode one of the steers.  
7.  I'm one of those Floridians that hates sea food.
8.  I taught myself photography on my dad's old Minolta x700.
9.  Loki, my cat, uses me as her portable bed.  If I'm sitting or laying down, she's attached.
10.  If I can get away with it, I'm barefoot.

The Questions

1. What's your favorite song/artist and why?
I don't have a single favorite, but I've been listening to Blue October a lot lately.  My best friend introduced me to the band and there are a ton of fond memories associated with their songs.

2. Why did you choose DeviantART to broadcast your art, and how long have you been an (active) member?
When I first got started here, it was just a way for me to collect resources for my photomanipulations.  I didn't truly become active until mid-2011, so about three years.

3. If you had a bucket list, what would at least be on it?
Learn how to rein, explore the world, photograph wild orcas, pet a Marwari, successfully run my own business (and help the husband with his) once we retire from the military.

4. What's the worst pick-up line you've heard? (Doesn't need to have been directed at you.)
You can ride me.

5. When you're ecstatitcally happy, do you have a happy dance or do you do anything else?
I make faces and strange noises.  Or I have my 'Asian grin' slapped on.

6. What are your hobbies, aside from making the art you show on DeviantART?
Reading, cooking, making things with my boys, hiking, traveling, and riding once I figure out my schedule at the new duty station.

7. Name something special about the place where you live.
Dinosaur Park preserves one of the most important dinosaur fossil sites east of the Mississippi River - it preserves a rare deposit of fossils (most notably the Astrodon) from the early Cretaceous period.

8. When you're watching a movie, you get annoyed with... (fill in the blank) and happy when... (fill in the blank).
Predictable events aggravate me to no end.  I love seeing alternate viewpoints (high, low, framed, etc).

9. What's the best book you've ever read and why?
There is no single best.  I'm a fan of horror, fantasy, and psychological thrillers.

10. Which goal(s) would you like to have achieved within the next 10 years?
Have my boys well-established in hobbies that they love, be riding regularly, and bring my family to British Columbia at least once.

Yep, you read it right. Female combat photographer/videographer. My job is my life, I'm happiest out in the nastiness with my 'family'. By the end of 2014, I'll be a photography instructor for the future combat cameramen of all branches of the U.S. Military. I specialize in comdoc/photojournalism and am beginning to build my portfolio for equestrian events.

Interested in a shoot? I'm currently located in central Maryland and spend a lot of time in southern Maryland.

My real family consists of my husband, two of the most awesome boys in the world, a cat, a cabbitt, and two rescue horses that I take care of on weekends (they're available for adoption, just sayin'). I adore them even though they try to steal my camera gear every chance they get. My life depends on caffeine, especially NOS and Starbucks.
