Hello there! My name is Nonee and I am a Connecticut life and style blogger, founder of Connecticut Bloggers Collective, nurse practitioner, designer, photographer, & brand strategist/entrepreneur. Nonee's World, the blog opened in March 2017 and has since grown far beyond sharing snippets about my personal life. Today, I have been granted the opportunity to collaborate with brands that I adore, attend blogger conferences and events, and monetize via this platform. By day, I am a nurse practitioner in the Surgical Critical Care, and by night I am pursuing my creative dreams. I am a proud H.I.P Medelita Ambassador for Medelita which is a lifestyle lab coat and scrub company.
Creativity is the passion of my life. I feel incredibly alive when I am able to express myself through my art. I began blogging January 1st, 2012 and I haven't looked back since. I am fueled by the symbiotic exchange that happens. This blog is part two for me; as in a blog named The Pinnest's Journal still is out there as a remnant of my past. I've grown and experienced so much since then and I'm so happy to indulge in this journey together. One of my favorite things in life is traveling. I love experiencing new cultures so I'm always packed; ready for new adventures! 3 things about me you must know: 1) I am a hustler, ) my husband Taj holds my heart, and 3) I occasionally obsess over specific foods- currently Jamaican Callaloo.
How Long? Since 2009...I was president of a club in college and found this new passion in taking pictures.
Canon or Nikon? Totes a Canon gal, I learned on a Canon and it stuck
Why photography? It is an artistic expression for me. I seriously love finding new angles and seeing what works and what does not.
Current Body? Canon T6i with multiple lenses (I love the ease for blogging and also the professional quality for photography)
Inspirations? Natural hues, raw & organic elements, and utilizing the real moments to help tell a story
Specialty? Lifestyle and product photography
QUIRKS ABOUT ME:
