I was born and raised in Germany and moved to Northern California at the age of 22 to complete my BA in Geography. I absolutely fell in love with the area, particularly Sonoma County, and decided to stay after I graduated and got hired as a CAD specialist and map editor at a small aerial survey firm. Today my husband and I live in the lovely town of Sebastopol with our dog Cody and cat Pumpkin. We both share a passion for cars and motorsports as well as photography. Currently we are in the process of building a side business as wedding and event photographers, and also display some of our work through local merchants. I usually enjoy eating out more than cooking at home, but we are members of a local CSA that supplies us with a box of fresh, organic veggies every week, and I have been making an effort to create healthy and delicious homecooked meals as much as possible lately.
