hi! I'm kerri.

I am a writer, librarian, and photographer. Depending on why we're meeting, I'll say those three things in a different order.

I created and manage Jersey Collective, a regionally popular collaborative Instagram account that serves as a community for people interested in New Jersey and photography. 

My writing has appeared on McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Billfold, and elsewhere. 

Before I finished library school, I worked for a few years as a portrait, fashion, and wedding photographer. I can occasionally be enticed to pick up my camera for really cool projects. 

My hobbies include: cooking, reading as much as I can, visiting historic sites and museums, and sharing bits of my daily life and adventures on Instagram. I live in central coastal New Jersey.

You can reach me by email.
