Born and raised in the Chicagoland area in Illinois, RiN developed a fascination and a passion for photography at a young age. Her father was her mentor and first teacher. He taught her the basics when she was in high school, and she ran from there by enroling in various photography courses throughout college, including two years of courses at Columbia College in Chicago.
RiN spent three years living and working in Charleston, South Carolina and has moved back to the Chicago area to further develop her career and goals. However, she is always willing to travel for work or play.
Nikon D300 in hand, RiN can't seem to go to an event without shooting. Photography is not only her career, but her passion. She has been internationally published and currently has art prints for sale.
