Angie's debut documentary, environmental and social good film Double Barrel (Peru), premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival before touring globally and airing on in-flight entertainment channels, TV, and online streaming platforms in multiple languages. Set in northern Peru, the film shares the story of her meeting of Peruvian surfer Harold Koechlin and their journey to raising environmental awareness in the oil-dominated coastal village of Lobitos in order to preserve the surf for generations to come. The film succeeded in helping the locals raise funds to induct the surf breaks of Lobitos into Peru's national registry of protected waves, a historical accomplishment.
Angie's second film, TV documentary feature The Laps: Tasmania, follows two Australian surfer dads around the rugged island of Tasmania with no cash, no car, no phone, and just 10 personal items each. With two weeks to circumnavigate the island, the cast discover the kindness of humans and the benefits of minimalism along their way. Premiering to a sold out Australian audience, the film is currently screening globally to positive acclaim.
Angie found film directing following a decade-long career in surf and travel journalism. As the previous editor and producer of Yahoo Travel, and with a long standing career as a freelance writer, producer, and content marketing specialist, the step into film directing was a natural progression.
Angie has spent time working with local surfing communities in northern Peru, mentoring women in rural Nepal in virtual reality and storytelling, and documenting social development projects in the far flung reaches of India's Himalayan region of Ladakh. Angie premiered Temme Media (NYC)’s virtual reality film Mothers of the Atlas at the United Nations Social Good Summit in 2017.
