Stephanie Dandan is a writer, photographer, wellness facilitator 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. As a child she wrote 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. She creates imagery that explores the genres of travel, fashion, lifestyle, underwater, and landscape photography. She splits her life between California, the Philippine Islands, and the road she calls home. She currently lives in Oahu, Hawai'i.

Her debut poetry collection Being, out now.
