My YouTube Channel - Eating to Live

This is the YouTube channel I created back in 2011 to share my love of vegetarian cooking. I continue to upload weekly recipes as well as bonus content that includes travel videos, vlogs, and the occasional DIY.

Videowaalé Films - Director of Photography and Film Editor

My husband and I started a film production company to tell love stories through the power of film. I am in charge of creative and stylistic elements for each shoot, as well as directing great portions of the shoots. I use my skills with Adobe Premiere to edit the majority of our films as well.
