Catherine grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest on a small island north of Seattle, where her days were spent making forts in the woods or roaming the rocky beaches gathering shells and driftwood, and when she became a teenager, attending the obligatory keggers in someone's barn or on the beach. ;)

After graduating from college (with a boring business degree), she spent two months roaming through Europe with her backpack. To this day she regrets not spending money on a better camera, instead of the weird, crappy, 110 film camera she had at the time. After her trip she moved to New York City, a place she had instantly fallen in love with when she first visited at the age of 19.

She purchased her first iPhone 3G in 2010, and since discovering it's camera and the amazing world of post processing available in the palm of her hand, a creative door was opened in her life. She now spends most of her spare time taking photos with her iPhone 4, apping photos, sharing photos, being inspired by other artist's amazing creations, and participating on the many online iPhoneography sites and blogs, and is a proud Staff Member on
