Tamara is a Wisconsin transplant who moved to New York after graduating from Columbia College Chicago in 2007. Both of her grandfathers were Midwest farmers, and as such she has a special place in her heart for green markets and homegrown vegetables, not to mention makers and doers of all sorts. In a previous life she was a long track speed skater, and was a participant in the 1998 Winter Olympic Trials at the age of 17. She also has a deep love of running and cycling. These days she walks everywhere, hikes, snowshoes, and XC skis whenever possible. While NYC is her home, Tamara spends as much time as possible in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York with her husband Keith. In fact, they were recently married on the shores of a mountain lake, surrounded by the peaks that they know and love.
Tamara is currently writing for a number of magazines, along with being an editor for the magazine LOCALadk. In addition, she works as a writer for a number of photo companies, and edits for fiction authors as well. She takes every chance she can to shoot photo essays, and recently finished up photographing the trees of the Adirondacks for the nature magazine, Woods Reader.
