Tina Berardi, Queens, New York

I discovered Tina on Instagram via a beautiful portrait taken by Andrew Kim while Tina was out in San Francisco vacationing and what turned out to be the sweetest part of it all was uncovering that she's a fellow New Yorker.

Anytime I get the lucky chance to hang out with down-to-earth, fun people who are as passionate about photographing and the social aspect that goes along with it, I will totally go out of my way to ensure the meet happens.

I'm absolutely looking forward to many more adventures and when she's not out doing her "thang", you get expect to find her at Grand Central Terminal Station working for our favorite fruit company, Apple. I love Andrew's intro of Tine in the caption of his photograph of her: "Apple Creative by day, creative apple by night."
