Stephanie Dandan is a writer & photographer also known as her moniker, Satori. A Filipina-American immigrant born and raised in Manila, grown in San Diego, California. Writing was her first love. Since she was a child she buried her head in diaries, wrote stories, poetry and documented her life on ink. She was in her late teens when she first discovered her passion for photography. Then, she followed her curiosities and began traveling around the world - where she fused her passion for writing and photography to inspire and tell stories. Creating imagery that explores the genres of travel, fashion, lifestyle, underwater, and landscape photography; she is also a deep observer studying the human condition, and living to write about it. She splits her life between California, the Philippine Islands, and the road she calls home.

She is currently based in Southern California, writing a novel.

Her debut poetry collection Being, out now.
