Tell everyone a little bit about yourself! Ok.. umm I am Canadian~ I
suffer from migraines, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety but I have a
wonderful family and awesome friends who offer their support when I
have bad days. I have 2 cats, Cinders & Sebastian. Cinders lives with my
parents and Sebastian lives with me. Uhh I have 1 sister who is ridic
awesome! I love her so much <3 She’s attending Sheridan Institute for
Illustration. I really love sleeping haha and I drink a lot of Tea, mostly
Orange Pekoe. I have a weakness for cheesecake and cherry flavoured
things. My favourite colour is Purple. I collect various nerdy things and
watch a lot of anime. I’m a hard worker though and I always give 110%! I
am always on time and I get things done on time.

How long have you been with BurningStars.net: Since 2002 I think!

What do you do for BurningStars.net: Photography & Website Design

What got you into Photography? I was the one who was always taking
photos at family get togethers and on outings with friends. I loved
documenting everything with my camera and creating memories. My Mom
and Grandmother both suggested I take a course and my Parents got me
my first DSLR for Christmas in 2007. My Mom, Dad, Sister and
Grandmother continue to be my biggest supporters.

When did you take on the role of Web Design for the site? I started
to really give input on the layout around 2005 I think. I wanted to be of
more help to the Boss Lady and so I started creating things for the site.
It wasn’t until 2011 that I gave the website a whole new look with a new
colour scheme though. I do not have any formal training in Web Design
though. I wing it~

What type of camera do you use? Canon 7D

What Program do you use to make things for the site? Photoshop
CS6

three. 1 - Meeting Avenged Sevenfold at Warped Tour in 2005 and M.
Shadows again in 2006! 2 - Meeting Davey Havok in London Ontario in
2006. He hugged me and thanked me for coming to the show! He also
signed my arm. A super sweet man he is <3 and 3 - Getting the chance
to photograph Avenged Sevenfold in Toronto at Rockstar Uproar in 2011!
They are my favourite band! I was in heaven!
