After receiving my B.A. in journalism at 21 focusing on broadcast, I moved to Hollywood to begin a career in entertainment television. As a red-carpet reporter and ghostwriter for E!, in the midst of a seemingly glamorous life of interviewing celebrities, I began to miss life in Arizona – perhaps it was college. A pros and cons list told me moving to Phoenix was worth taking a chance, and so I moved accepting a job with The Arizona Republic. Shortly after, I left the journalism field for a switch in careers, specializing in corporate marketing and branding.
On the side, I started a graphic design boutique in 2006 and a few short years later, became a shutterbug in 2010, launching Diana Elizabeth Photography. I decided to leave corporate America and give it a year to work as a full-time entrepreneur to see if I could live my dreams. Soon after, I met my husband Benjamin, known as Mr. Wonderful, and six months after our first date, we said I do on a snowy day in Sedona.
As I blogged about my work as a photographer, words kept coming and they never stopped. This blog has become a blend of using all my creative passions and entrepreneur experiences – writing, marketing, modeling, hosting, and photography and has brought me new friendships and opportunities I don’t take for granted.
Thank you for stopping by and allowing me share my passions and daily life with you.
Stay true to who God created you to be and surround yourself with those who encourage you to be the best you!
