I am sort of a spy
— Vivian Maier

I’m a misplaced California girl who landed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn some time in the last century and never left. I’ve always loved taking photos, but when I gave up painting to become a writer, I decided that a camera was a perfectly good way to keep making pictures. Now I write to support my photography habit and I couldn’t be happier. And the best part is that I get to shoot every day in New York City … which isn’t California, but it’s a beautiful gritty fairytale sparkling with millions of stories and all kinds of odd magic.
