Christine, Instagram Moderator – @thehappilyeverafter
Born and raised in New Jersey, Christine (@thehappilyeverafter) joined Instagram in 2012 as a place to post photos for a 365 photo project, never imagining it would become a place to meet and connect with people from all over the world. She likes to travel and explore places both near and far, and of course take photos along the way. Scenes in nature are her favorite subject to photograph and being part of the NJspots team has been a great source of inspiration for all the amazing places right here in New Jersey that she has yet to discover! She also likes to hike, bike, read, garden, cook and spend time with her family.

Mike (@mikecordisco) is a Rutgers alum born and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ who currently resides in Dallas, TX. Despite the move, he is glad to rep the Garden State. Mike loves baseball, music, hiking, and traveling. His passion for photography developed while traveling to different ballparks and campgrounds across the country, as he always tried to find the “perfect shot” to document his travels. Now he enjoys just taking pictures of “cool stuff”. Mike is excited to share fantastic photographs from around New Jersey on our Facebook page and is currently craving a Wawa hoagie.

Once he found #NJspots things were never the same. He was encouraged to step out of his comfort zone and solo travel to explore mountain tops, countries, cities, and suburbs. He is excited to share his #NJspots posts with everyone, and cant wait to meet so many new people and hear their stories.
Rich, Graphic Designer – @rich_lemonie
I’m a Jersey boy for all 34 years of my life with a special love for one of the NY boroughs…the Bronx. Bronx is my pitbull mix rescue who’s just about 10 years old with the energy of a pup and the mindset of a Chihuahua when he’s laying on me. He pops up in many of my photos, he’s a great model! Recently engaged to my fiance Rob. I graduated from Kean University with a degree in Photography and picked up Graphic Design along the way. I’m a wanderlust! I love to get out and be adventurous. I particularly am a huge urban explorer. Yes, I go inside of abandoned buildings…I do wear a breathing mask (safety first). My fascination with these places is what’s the story in these walls and why were they left to be forgotten, besides the beauty in decay.
