Some fun, random facts about Elsbeth.
She was a nerd before it was cool.
Seriously though. My first love will always be Harry Potter. Growing up in the Potter generation has cemented the story in my heart, in a way most muggles could never comprehend. Im also a huge fan of books in general. I normally go right for the magical realism and fantasy, but I'm also a sucker for young adult fiction.
Some of my favorite series (besides the Potter-verse) include : Miss Perigrine's Home for Peculiar Children, Divergent, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy & Hunger Games. Some of my favorite stand alone novels : Ready Player One, Gone Girl, Looking for Alaska, The Giver, Ender's Game (yes I know there are 4 novels in a series, but I've only read this one so far.) & The Fault in Our Stars.
Favorite Video Games include: Portal, Portal 2 (The cake is a lie. Save the potato.), SSX, Super Mario World, Pokemon (Currently playing Alpha Sapphire), The Sims, Mario Kart 64, Duck Hunt, The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego?, and Pikmin.
She is a Padi certified Scuba Diver.
That's right! I am! It was one of the most grueling things I've ever been certified for, but really rewarding. After all the training and practice dives and finally my open water dives were all done, well that was one of the proudest moments of my life. Proof!
Her family owns and operates a farm themed Campground.
It's called Pleasant Acres Farm Campground, and it is located in the Skylands Region. My grandparents opened the business in 1972, and its still run by a bunch of Denmans. More info can be found at Pleasantacres.com.
She worked as a Tattoo artist from 2010- 2014.
Everyone needs a survival job, at least mine let me express myself. Portfolio can be seen here.
For the last 11 years, she has run out in the snow in a bikini.
Why? I don't even know anymore. At this point, I have done it for so long that I think it would be fun to look back at when I'm 90 and say, "yeah, I stuck to that." There's a strange satisfaction in seeing the journey of my life documented in that way. Check it out!
She is an aspiring Photographer.
I have been refining my skills for the last year or so. Its a hobby that brings me a lot of joy. I love making people look their absolute best! Portfolio.
