I started this blog as a creative outlet from my day job - energy market analysis. While I love analytical work and enjoyed it enough to get an undergraduate degree in mathematics, I’m also an artist at heart. I grew up in the performing arts and continue to incorporate it in my life through dance classes and attending local shows, but sometimes it’s not quite enough.
I picked up photography in November 2010, in hopes of encouraging myself to discover more creativity in life. I’ve surprised myself with how much beauty and art I’ve found in very simple elements of everyday life. This blog centers around those elements and what I find creative and beautiful - fashion, food, and the adventures I have that make life fun and exciting.
I hope you enjoy your time here! Feel free to drop me a note anytime at LongeneckerStoryShort@gmail.com.
