Raised in San Antonio, Annalise spent her childhood running around the Texas Hill Country with a camera in hand, finding magic in the natural world through her lens. She went on to study film production and anthropology at the University of Southern California, developing her passion for telling stories that explore how people shape and are shaped by our natural environment. She spent her time in the film industry wearing many different hats, from producing documentaries for publications like The Atlantic and The New York Times, to stunt driving, to working as a set medic (she is also an EMT).
In her free time, you can find Annalise scuba diving, tinkering with vintage sewing machines, and tricking her self-described “indoorsy” friends into camping with her and her dog Gary.
