Born and raised in the Chicago area has given me a solid set of Midwestern values and an eye for the crazy in all of us. I am married to my best friend and we are currently raising two children as best we can. After high school I earned a degree in Fine Arts at the Atlanta College of Art (a museum school associated with the HIgh Museum of Art) and fell in love with the south. However entranced I was by this culture and history I yearned to get back to my roots and family and moved back to Chicago where I plan to stay. I have two blogs; allkindsofcrazy.wordpress.com in which I share my views and life on things that no one speaks outloud and allkindsofreality.wordpress.com in which you can see my point of view from the lens of my camera.
