I moved from the Metro Detroit area to Grand Rapids in October 2009, and fell in love with the Rapidian right away. I like how the Rapidian is an invaluable tool for contributing to the community, meeting new friends, and discovering new places and events in Grand Rapids. I am always looking for an excuse to point my camera at something interesting and capture a good story. Feel free to contact me with your ideas, events, and opportunities. Or just to say "hi" and make friends. MY EMAIL IS firstname.lastname@example.org
