And Now a Bunch of Words from Our Art/Layout and Design Director

Like most of you, my time is limited by the many responsibilities in my life. .. I have been squeezing in moments for SUCKER…Yesterday, I spent an hour trying to get a photo of me with a sucker lollypop so I can include it in the magazine. And then the other day after work, I sped off to Purgatory chasm to a get a shot for one of the stories…the road was closed, but I knew I had to get the photo. So I parked and I ran to edge of the cliff and there was a man there, and I thought I was going to get abducted! But I had to get the photo! In 4.5 seconds, I got 100 photos…and then I raced to pick my kids up from school…I couldn’t sleep that night knowing I did not get the best shot and thinking of the next story I can match a photo to…

This has been a great opportunity for me. I get to photograph, which has become a passion in my life, a side a me that I haven’t had a chance to explore in the last nine years…

I’m having fun. When Hannah came to me with this idea, I was shocked and surprised. I had no idea she had been brewing this in that head of hers, but I knew if anyone could do this, Hannah could and I was thrilled when she suggested I come along for the ride.
