Beth has been doing professional photography editing and outsourcing for the past 8 years, and has been doing it full-time since 2014. Or 2015. She forgets. 🙂 Anyway, she loves her job and working with amazing and talented artists around the world, all while sitting at home at her computer drinking whiskey and not having to wear pants on the daily. She currently lives in a mid-sized city North of the Wall (aka, Wisconsin) with two roommates and her pet lizard, Goober, who keeps her company while she works and tolerates the dumb songs Beth sings to her all day….every day.
