Rorie is a Chicagoland native, spending half her time growing up in a dance studio and the other half in a photography studio. She discovered her love for photography through her dance education, intrigued by the shapes and lines the human body can create. Many of her fine art photography focuses on these elements.
Rorie decided to create i am rorie as an outlet and online portfolio for her content development after becoming interested in the marketing industry. She finally settled on a health and lifestyle focus after learning about the food industry from a close relative. Rorie aims to encourage her readers, and beyond, to live a purposeful and active life, being considerate of the source and process through which society consumes. Rorie believes that a little effort and creativity in the kitchen can turn cooking from a burden into something fun.
In her spare time, Rorie enjoys exploring Chicago neighborhoods, traveling coast to coast, and dedicatedly attempting to pet every animal she encounters. She is constantly asking herself "Can I make this vegan?".
