1. After a long time planning, I am excited to be joining my friends Kara Sparkman & Elissa Pfost this fall to explore the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to the far reaches of Canada! We will be doing a road trip, chronicling the lives of women who surf in this beautiful part of the world, and making art along the way while also collaborating with many talented residents during our trip.

    Want to join or meet, let us know!

  15. SURFCAREERS.COM interviewed me for their site in a nice thread they have on the different people who work in the surf world in different countries. A little nostalgic to travel back into time and respond to many of the questions. Thank you to SURFCAREERS.COM for your interest in me:-)
