7 things you never asked about but may wish to know:

  • Family man. Would do anything for my goofy little girls.
  • Among other things, the resident chef and chief coffee grinder at home. Sam has enjoyed coffee in bed for more than a decade!
  • Not ashamed to admit crying when Steve Jobs died.
  • You know you're old when you started your photography career with film and a dark room {no instant gratification here, folks!}
  • Don't be surprised if I get you out of your comfort zone. This tends to be my forte.
  • Impersonating Christopher Walken is a fave pastime of mine. But don't ask me to do it around Sam lest you want copious eye rolling and her usual "get some new material!"
  • If you're open-minded, quirky, and carefree chances are we'll "click."


7 things you never asked about but may wish to know:

  • Alvi is the best thing that ever happened to me. Cheesy, but true. We've been married ten years and I haven't looked back.
  • Can't cook to save my life but lucked out in the organizational department.
  • I'm obsessed with lists. You'll find them written on anything I can get my hands on... including my hands.
  • I voluntarily place myself on 20,000 ft mountain ledges, subject to little oxygen and frozen feet. This is pretty much my idea of a good time!
  • Hitting snooze at least 6 or 7 times before waking makes me super popular in the morning.
  • Full-time financial advisor... need a retirement plan?!
  • Seriously considering forming a support group for tired parents of dramatic, pre-pubescent daughters.


7 things you never asked about but may wish to know:

  • Student, daughter, friend, photo fanatic, horse back rider, bibliophile, folk music lover, friend of the whales, hopeless wanderer.
  • Nail polish obsessed. My current collection stands at 150+ bottles...and growing.
  • As a child, I aspired to be a figure skating rapper, despite the fact that I can't even stand on skates and my rapping ability is subpar.
  • It's been said that I create the greatest music mixes for road trips.
  • Ultimate procrastinator. I once took up knitting to avoid studying for finals.
  • Have been known to online shop while asleep - aka, how I purchased the entire series of Law + Order SVU on DVD.
  • Not ashamed to admit that a good chunk of the posing knowledge I give to brides comes from watching a lot of America's Next Top Model.
