"I find the concept of being present in each of the photographs yet remaining invisible quite incredible. I have an undeniable presence in each photograph yet there is no evidence that I was there other than the light sculptures that have been left behind."

You Were A House On FireArtist
Who I Am: I’m Erin—a Florida native with mountain dreams, a Disney Cast Member, and an always-barefoot perpetual over-sleeper. I grew up blocks from the fort in St. Augustine, the nation’s oldest city and the home of trollies, pirate reenactments, and ghost tours.
Stuff I Like: Good conversations, sleeping in, riding rollercoasters, using power tools, doing arts and crafts, and biking. I can’t get enough of “LOST,” “Sherlock,” “The Walking Dead,” “30 Rock,” and “New Girl,” and I have a weakness for anything on HGTV. I’m also a fan of road trips, popsicles, and Marvel superheroes. I could watch fireworks every day forever and still think they’re the greatest things of all time. For the life of me, I can’t get off Pinterest.
Why I’m Here: I found out about TWLOHA around 7 years ago when I was in high school. It was the first time that I had ever heard someone outside of a doctor’s office talk about depression or treat people dealing with mental health issues as people rather than statistics. I had never heard anyone speak about hope in a way that was believable or tangible, and I still feel like it’s something that’s very special and has the potential to change conversations, minds, and lives. I remember writing a message to TWLOHA when I was struggling and having someone answer me with love and care, and I wanted the chance to be that person for someone else.
I would most likely stuff the fridge with: Raspberries, Tapioca pudding, Alfalfa sprouts, and about 8 cases of Dr. Pepper.
If my music is on, I’m listening to: Daughter, Young the Giant, old school Copeland, Imagine Dragons, and American Authors. In the office, it’s Kodaline and Vitamin String Quartet covers of Linkin Park. I’m lost without my Spotify.
Outside of the office, I’m most likely: Reading next to everyone else while they’re enthusiastically watching sports or trying to plan my first tattoo.
If you had a superpower, which would it be? Why? I’d either want to teleport so I’d never have to sit in traffic again. Or be able to have my fridge perpetually full of food. Is that a super power? It really should be…
