She has been both in front of the camera and behind it, putting out Skate Witches edits which led to Vans tapping her to produce their recent video Credits. Leading the pack as the first woman to direct a skate video for a major shoe brand, we thought she would be a good candidate for a one sheet to turn us all onto some new interests.
