Directing in Hollywood, Surfing & Sobriety with Vanessa Joy Smith

May 31, 2021

In this episode of the Salted Spirit Podcast, I invited my friend and fellow surfer, Sara Price to take the mic and host! Sara is a writer for the American Crime TV series, Mayans M.C., she’s a close surf friend, comedian and one of my favorite people to roadtrip with! 

She interviews Vanessa Joy Smith, the Director of Photography for Mayans, and Vanessa opens up about her unique perspective as a female in a male dominated industry in Hollywood. Vanessa also shares her journey with 16+ years of sobriety, traveling through Thailand and finding Buddhism. 

Vanessa grew up surfing with the boys and a water baby at heart, and offers a unique perspective and resilience that I was personally very inspired by.
