10 Things You Might Not Know About Me

Moving someplace new means you are asked about your life and who you are a lot as you meet new people – and this is fun for me! I enjoy getting to know a new place very much. In the last few weeks I’ve been asked a lot of things – but here are the most common:

  1. ¬†Would you like to meet for coffee? Yes! As long as where we go has iced tea ūüôā
  2.  Where do you love going to dinner? Anyplace that has a pet-friendly patio and a great beer menu.
  3.  Do you have a family? I am the eldest of 2 children, and I do not yet have children myself.
  4.  Do you travel a lot? Work takes me a lot of places and my downtime is spent exploring California.
  5.  Why do you want to live in El Segundo? So far, this is the quietest of the beach cities to me. I like the people and the chill vibe here.
  6.  What made you become a photographer?  A long time ago I fell in love with the ability to communicate without using words.
  7.  What brought you here? Life changes and winter weather meant a move from Minnesota to California.
  8. ¬†Who is the dog I see in your studio?¬†That’s Eloise. She’s part Mascot and part Muse. Full-time nap-taker.
  9.  Can I call you Angie? Nope. Only my dad calls me that.
  10.  How do you see yourself in 5 years?  Hopefully with a margarita.

By now people are getting used to my Texas accent, open studio door and huge laugh. It’s how I am – I can’t help it.
