**SECOND PLACE WINNER- NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR- ACTION**
I'm a 27 year old stormchasing goth girl living in Arizona- I know, what's there to chase in AZ? We don't have many tornadoes, true, but we have some crazy monsoon seasons every year that produce dramatic and dangerous storms all the same. Once a year, I go out to the plains and pursue my real love: tornadoes and supercells.
Chasing is my lifelong passion and dream, and I'm glad to be doing it now not only as my hobby but my career. I have an associates in applied science (thermodynamics and atmospheric science) and am working toward a doctorates in research meteorology. Severe weather photography is my life, and I plan to live it to the fullest.
