    Biography: 14 years and counting since I fell down the rabbit hole, clutching a 2.01 mp Samsung Digimax and entering every challenge I could! Things sure have changed.

    Past member of Team Suck and recently, past Queen of the Critique Club with over 700 critiques under my belt. Thoughtful, constructive critiques helped me improve my photography tremendously, and I try to help those that request critiques in the same way.

    February 16 2010: Won my first blue ribbon with Plane of Perspective for Perspective VI with a score just under 7 :-)

    November 14, 2011: Finally broke 7 with Frosted fall, making it my new PB and also giving me my first Honourable Mention.

    December 2 2011: Won my first red ribbon with Pauper's feast for Feast II...again, with a score just under 7 :-)

    February 6, 2014: Finally broke the 7.000 curse with a red ribbon for The Day Heavy Shot Kicked The Sky...and in Best of 2013 no less!!

    July 21 2017: At long, long last, a ribbon in an Expert Extended Editing challenge with The fate of the Nosy Neighbour for Comic Book Page. Woohoo!

    Life is for the living. Enjoy every moment, always treat others well or you're in for a cosmic spanking. And tides are for swimming against.

    Pay attention to omens. A Canon-toting redhead introduced me to DPC, and another Canon-toting redhead is my boyfriend!

    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling. - Sean Michael Matos
