About Chelsea

I am a nature lover & outdoor adventurer. Maui's waterfalls, trees, mountains, sky, & ocean deeply inspire me. Yes to frolicking in the forest & celebrating life sunkissed & salty by the sea! I love tropical foods & plant medicine. I am also a yogi, a musician & I love to dance.

I am a scientist & an artist. I believe in the interdisciplinary & the interconnectedness. I believe in personal & global healing. I believe in life as art.

I have a degree in Science, Technology & the Environment from Pomona College (Claremont, CA). I am passionate about regenerative design & art as a vehicle for social change.

Photography lights me up! Using precision technology to make art with the natural world is truly exhilarating. Photography transcends culture, geography, words, time & space. It is a portal, a universal language. A live-action mirror. A healer. A celebrator. An infinite playground! Photography is the ultimate storyteller!

I met the love of my life in college. Ironically, her name is also Chelsea. We laugh at the universe’s perfection & humor fixing up two Chelseas. We are exponentially blessed to share this glorious life together.


Life on Maui is sacred, beautiful, vibrant & alive. I am inspired by the diverse microclimates & some of the best night sky viewing in the world. I am in love with the light, the colors, the textures, the sunsets…the community… The aloha spirit & the magic are real. So grateful.
