“I am inspired by the beauty that surrounds me every day. It was many years ago while filming surfers for my surf films at home in California, and in amazing, beautiful locations that I really began to notice and appreciate. As I sat with the camera, it was “in-between the set waves” that made me stop, look around, breathe and SEE. I enjoy telling stories about female surfers. I am passionate about protecting the places we love. And I am STOKED to share my surf films and photos with you here.
Thank you for visiting & Enjoy!”
