I'm Andy. I'm a Central Coast local; I've been here my whole life, so I know all the best restaurants to go to (not really I just go to chipotle over and over again). I've been into photography ever since I was baby. Since then, I've learned a bunch of the tricks of the trade and have spent way too much on fancy equipment. Ok, I don't want to hype myself up too much, but I like to think that I at least kind of know what I'm doing, and at the very least, I enjoy it. Most of the time.
I primarily do landscape photography (cuz I'm a loner), including other more specific subcategories like black and white, astrophotography, and long exposure. Here's some examples:
I do other very cool things too, like:
- Board games, yay! I'm pretty good at games Settlers of Catan, King of New York, Pandemic, Scrabble, and a slew of others. I promise I won't get too competitive. I lied, I definitely will.
- Hiking, you know, so I can take photos. I've been to Yosemite a bunch of times and have done many of the hikes on the Central Coast. I'm not a good hiking parter though; I complain a lot.
- Travelling, kinda. It's anxiety inducing and expensive, but get past that and it's pretty cool. Some places I really like include the Central Coast (hey, that's where we live!) when it isn't totally dead and brown, Yosemite, Switzerland, and Iceland (I have not been to Iceland, but it's literally all I want to do). I also really like Kansas for some reason. I was there during a lightning storm in 2014 and I love lightning.
- Uh oh, I'm running out of things for the list. Uh, Reddit is great, I'll be a film snob sometimes, I play around three video games occasionally but not really that much, aaaand that's all folks sorry I'm pretty boring
Ok, hopefully that gives you an idea of me. If you want to see more of my photos, check out my Instagram! (just ignore the really old photos they're terrible) Give me a follow to fill that void in my soul!

Answer to "No SIM detected all of a sudden"I’ve had similar issues with memory cards that I was able to resolve with a quick burst of compressed air inside the port. Might be worth a shot.
