My Gear

Erin is a stark minimalist when it comes to her personal tech. She researches and writes on a 2017 MacBook Pro and uses an iPhone 7 to stay organized (and take photos to post on VSCO). A lover of vintage technology, her other personal devices include a collection of old film cameras and a Smith-Corona portable typewriter from the 1950s.


Erin graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a B.F.A. and a minor in political science.
