I'm Vivian and I live aboard my 47' sailboat, Ultima, with my husband Nathan and together, we run offshore training passages. When we're not sailing, you can find me working on collaborations for movies, articles, portrait and commercial work. I am a nomad at heart who finds gratifaction in cozying up to great literature and nurturing friends and family with food and wine.
Five years ago, I moved to Switzerland to help produce a documentary, Grindelwald: Spirit of the Alps and through cinematography, I crafted my skills as a photographer. I later worked as a second shooter for a busy portrait studio shooting weddings and then later became an event photographer for a local magazine. My love for media began to grow as I worked as a production coordinator and did research for another documentary, Extreme Weather. I find pleasure in capturing our world because Earth is never going to be the same and I'd love to capture it at this moment. Maybe one day, people will look at my work as I have found inspiration from my favorite artists and authors.
During this time, Nathan's goal to become a delivery skipper took us on adventures out to sea. We lived out of our suitcases for 3 years and jumped aboard many boats of different sizes and styles to gain experience as professional sailors. We have worked many weeks and months separately to accomplish our individual goals and I'm so glad to have a partner who is willing to work on himself as well as take time to help me with my journey. I have helped him steer his course underway, and he has helped me produce and write the projects I've taken on. It's a great feeling to now be able to combine my love for sailing with media projects related to science and nature.
I end up meeting people from all around the world who have amazing ideas and dreams. I would love to help you out. I can produce for your business or home, for personal or commercial use, and if something is out of my scope, I can help by connecting you to the right person for the job. I love brainstorming and turning visions into final products.
