In Her Own Words
I’m a photographer and filmmaker based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
I’m most known for my Shot on iPhone billboards and TV commercial. I love to use the iPhone for photography and for filmmaking.
I like proving that you don’t need expensive gear to create good content. And I like teaching others how to do it. Because once you know how, there are no limits. You can tell your story, you can deliver your message, you can raise awareness about your brand, you can do anything and with very little investment.
When I’m not teaching, I do commercial photography and videography in the Bay Area. I’ve done work for/published by Google, Apple, Microsoft, National Geographic, Business Insider, Sunset Magazine, Cult of Mac & Mens Health, to name a few.
For fun I’m a music photojournalist for Vandala Magazine. I’ve photographed portaits of artists like Red Hot Chili Peppers, Michael Franti, Misterwives, and The Lumineers.
