Jilian - Photographer

Hey hey hey! My name is Jilian and I live in Kansas City, MO. I've had the privilege to travel the world taking photos of amazing people and beautiful places.  Over the years, I've had a variety of jobs including teaching high school Visual Art and Stategcraft in Gwinnett County Public Schools, modeled professionally, and I currently work as a TV and film actress! (You may have seen me on your television screens at some point over the years!) I have a BFA in Art/Art Education from the University of Georgia, Athens.

Hmm... what else about lil old me? When I'm not working, I am in the photo or mosh pit shooting punk rock shows around Atlanta and Athens. I have an unhealthy obsession with Bayside. I have been a runner for the last 17 years (gah I'm old!), I love giant cups of coffee, am constantly reading something - mostly psychology or history books, and enjoy collecting vinyl. On nice days you can find me hanging at my airport; I've been flying single engine aircraft since high school and planes are the loves of my life. 

My favorite places I have traveled to is Amsterdam, Italy, and Scotland hands down.

Some places on my bucket list : Spain and Ireland. 

Writing about yourself is so hard! I am an open book so if you want to know more about me- just ask!

I will leave you with this: I feel so incredibly lucky to have my dream job of capturing moments to treasure forever!
