Studying photography at a community college
People would be surprised to know that I...
Not too surprising considering I am Canadian, but I do love playing hockey. I've been playing since the age of six!

Your favorite film and scene from the film:

  1. First of all, I love your blog! Malcolm is a beautiful boy but he looks a tad strange in these pics. I suspect it could be from over use of the cloning tool? Particularly under his eyes.
