When your hobby is your lifeblood
Interesting people have side projects.
At least that's what I heard. Here's a small collection of what I've had brewing.
Camp Reel Stories
Camp Reel Stories believes that when women and girls are better represented behind the scenes in the media, they will be better reflected on the screen. For the past few summers, I've been teaching cinematography at Camp Reel Stories, a summer filmmaking program for girls ages 13-18. I was interviewed by NPR's The Frame while teaching at camp.

Not many things inspire me to be somewhere by 7:45am. To that, I give you CreativeMornings Oakland! I am a co-founder and the video lead at this entirely volunteer-run monthly breakfast lecture event for the creative community. It is seriously nothing short of magical. Please give me a hug and high five if you make it up for an event.

Oakland Fence Project
I'm a featured artist in the Oakland Fence Project, an outdoor photography installation and online exhibit designed to connect artists and communities. The project vision calls for covering fences in the city with dramatic 6-foot tall pictures taken by Oakland photographers, augmented with video by Oakland filmmakers, and powered by technology coded by Oakland developers.
We were featured as #EverydayReal neighborhood regulars of Oakland's Viscera, a shop specializing in monochromatic clothing and 3D-printed jewelry made exclusively in the United States. We also love that it's owned by an amazing woman of color! Swing by next time you're downtown! Photos by Miles Bianchi.
