Jennifer Huang is a future dog hoarder. She currently studies Fine Arts and Anthropology at Carnegie Mellon University, but in all honesty, she has no idea what she wants to do (Maybe a creative writing minor? Who knows).

In the past, she has worked with magazines such as Pulp Literary Magazine and Breakdown Music Press. Besides dogs, she enjoys good jokes, television, cloudy weather, and bacon.

When she’s not taking photos for Ryerson University class assignments, you can find her curling up with a good book, unashamedly watching an obscene amount of reality television, or unsuccessfully attempting to cook in her little Toronto apartment.
