About Ashlee Bratton

Ashlee Bratton - a Colorado native that busted a move years ago to California while working as an area manager for Coors Brewing Company...and took her communications degree from Colorado State University and internet marketing background with her as she went. After getting her master's degree in business administration from the University of Redlands and studying abroad in Scandinavia, Ashlee pursued her love of photography and started her Ashography Event & Portrait Photography business in 2009, studying underneath two wedding photographers and taking classes at the Ansel Adams gallery in Yosemite. Writing has always been a passion of hers, as evidenced through projects such as producing a 56 page visitor guide publication distributed in over 2,400 locations, writing food reviews for Vail's "EAT" magazine, and starting and maintaining the ever-entertaining 30x30 blog. So after the 30x30 experience it only seems fitting to tell the stories in her own words. Now back in Colorado and loving life in the mountains, it's time to tell the 30x30 tale and real-life lessons of completing 29, yes 29, of the 30 items on her 30x30 list. (Think a real live "bucket list"...with very real obstacles and a very real expiration date.) Dreams aren't meant to stay in your head. If she can do it, anyone can. Thank you for being a part of this journey and seeing this book dream come to life!
