HEATHER DANIELS PUSEY
Video | Photography | Audio | Web Design
My work as a digital storyteller revolves around inspiring others to reconnect with the natural world, themselves and holistic modalities. With one foot immersed in technology and the other in holistic wellness, I'm striving to create a long line of work based around inspiring the spirit, mindfulness, dignity, interconnection, self care and the stories behind the people spreading their knowledge and passion about these topics.
My end goal is to help awakened wanderers, hungry ghosts and highly sensitive people find healthy and hopeful outlets; a passion which stems from the realization that people rarely find relief from their perceptual suffering, especially in Western society.
My areas of technical expertise include Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Studio, Google Earth Pro, Mac Operating Systems, media management and social media platforms. Along with my technological skill set, I also have a degree in alternative and holistic wellness, I am a Reiki practitioner, a cook specializing in food sensitivities and allergies, study sound healing, herbalism and wild crafting. In short, I'm interested in all aspects of holistic living, making them accessible and easily understood.
