Where did you go to school?
I went to Smith College, a women's college in Massachusetts. It's a really great school and I highly recommend it, although it isn't for everyone. If you want to know more about what it's like to be a Smithie, click here. If you're interested in reading about my college days in general, you can read about that here And if you're visiting Northampton or Western Mass, I have some recommendations for you!

What camera do you use?
The earliest photos on the blog were from my trusty old Coolpix. Then my parents and boyfriend went in together on a Nikon d5100 for my birthday. I'm still learning to use it, but I absolutely love it and it is my primary camera these days. I use a kit lens (18-55mm; f/3.5-5.4), as well as a prime lens (Quantaray 52mm, f/1.8 and up), and when I need a tripod, I use a Vanguard Alta Pro 263AB 100. The vast majority of the photos on this blog come from that collection of equipment, but when it's too much firepower or weight, I usually opt for my iPhone (4s), so you'll see a few of those, too.

Why are you called the Geneva Convention?
Because my name is Geneva, and it seemed mildly clever. I studied international politics in college (technically the focus of my degree, though I have yet to use it!), which makes it a little cute. And before you ask, yes, I have been to Geneva, Switzerland. I found it cold (literally) and aloof (figuratively) -- characteristics I share, but which are a little disappointing for a traveler.

Who is _____? I recognize the person, but not the name!
Being a blogger, I put an awful lot of my life up on the internet for anyone to see. I respect that not everyone wants that kind of exposure, so if you know me in real life, you may notice that I refer to some people here by nicknames, or by a different name completely. Don't worry -- I haven't replaced them, I'm just making an effort to respect their privacy.

Where do you live/work?
Let's just say I work in communications in a small town in Michigan and leave it at that.

  1. This is a gorgeous place. The reception area and the waiting room at meeting space San Francisco will make you feel special. There is luxury vibes that will welcome you. Aside from this, the conference room contains many technology and catering options.
