About Amanda

About Me in General: Born in Illinois in 1987. Moved to Suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania when I was 2 and have lived there ever since with my parents and younger brother. I graduated from Arcadia University with my Bachelors in Fine Art with a concentration in Photography in May 2009. I’m very excited and nervous about starting my career for real now. I am a Philly girl through and through. I love my Eagles and my Phillies! I bleed green and red (makes me feel like I’m christmas!) 🙂
