At age nineteen I moved to Leesburg Virginia a year after my dad had done so for a new job.  I moved down with no solid promise of a job.   I did however have a promise of assisting a photographer in the area.  But she moved on to commercial Realestate shortly after I started with her.  The jobs from her became scarce after her decision.  I decided to part ways at start working in a coffee shop!  With my love of coffee that was easy!  I quickly learned the basics of barista-ing.  A year later I decided to move to a different, more elegant coffee shop.  I learned so much more about coffee.  eventually I became the head barista of the shop.  Now twenty one years of age I manage a coffee shop and own my own photography business.
