Desiree Moore was born in 1986 in the Hoosier state. She began thinking about art, specifically photography, during her 8th grade year in the main cafeteria when she saw it listed as a class available in high school. Immediately she was dismayed, as only juniors and seniors could take the class. She waited 2 years. Her last two years of high school left her hands with a permanent stench of developer and fixative- she loved it. With high acclaims she went to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago immediately after high school. She didn’t like it and left. In 2005, she began pursuit of her B.F.A. with an emphasis in Photography at Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis. She now resides in the S’Lab, or graduate computer lab, for days and nights on end editing video while pursuing her M.F.A. at the University of South Florida in Tampa. She intends to graduate in 2013 without carpal tunnel.

Her current accomplishments include receiving the “Best in Show” award at the 36th Annual Juried Show at USF in Tampa as well as making the top 5 of the recent Creative Loafing Video contest associated with the Gasparilla International Film Festival. Recently, she was named runner-up in the Organix Commercial Contest. Moore received a year supply of Organix Shampoo and Conditioner for this honor. She is excited to not have to purchase hair care products for a long time. Along with this she had 3 current works screened at the Videoholica Film Festival in Bulgaria in 2011.
