Tina began her photography efforts as a teen, focusing on the Baltimore MD. local music scene. She gave up photography to enlist in the United States Marine Corps. Her drive to capture the essence of performers came back with a vengeance when she was given the opportunity to work with a Chicago Media outlet to shoot Summerfest 2016. Since then she's worked with a large number of DC based local artists, and shot for several regional and international acts such as bluegrass singer Paul Thorn and 80's synthpop icon Howard Jones.

Patchchordnews.com was started by two people who love music and photography but was frustrated by some of the websites out there. The best way to describe this site is a music magazine meets a photograph essay magazine.
