My biggest passion, outside of photography, is definitely food.

I attribute my love of food to my father, who is the best cook I know. I was spoiled growing up, eating his dinners and thinking that food was just naturally that good. Now that I live on my own, I realize just how hard it really is and, needless to say, I pretty much live off of cereal. I suppose it’s all part of the college experience.

Although I may not be able to roast a duck or turn out a perfect soufflé, I can bake a cake better than anyone I know. Cookies, cakes, cupcakes, anything with chocolate; that's my forte.

I also enjoy graphic design. I have taught myself how to use all of the major design programs, such as InDesign and Illustrator, and I am taking an online design course this semester that I hope will teach me some new things.
