My good friend Mary recommended Camera + to me and now I use it constantly to photograph products for my business.

I’m obsessed with fonts. I’m constantly checking MyFonts.com for new free fonts that I can download. I’m also obsessed with beards and constantly encourage all of my male friends to grow facial hair.

Pecha Kucha
