Welcome EyeTanya Team Members Kathryn and Phoebe!

I want to officially welcome Kathryn Robinson and Phoebe Tooke to the Eye Tanya team.

I’ve know Kathryn now for a few years, meeting in a Directing class which is where I became her fan. We ran into each other over time and I’ve always been inspired by her path and projects she works on. So I’m happy to say her spirit and strength is well needed at Eye Tanya! Bienvenidos Kathryn!

Phoebe came as a gift to me through some dear filmmaking friends of mine Natalijia Vejik and Christian Bruno. Phoebe, a documentary filmmaker with a unique vision and sense of storytelling was researching technology and the body and was recommended to check out my blog / story. She approached me about doing a documentary about my Eye-Camera project and I was relieved to have someone as grounded and focused as Phoebe. She brings her vision to the project and I’m grateful for her artistry and commitment to the project!
