Born in Santa Cruz, California to a Folk Singer Songwriter and a Literary Writer, the arts and ocean living have always been a way of life for Stef. Emerging out of a large family of musicians and artists, improvisation and creativity had become firmly rooted at an early age. Life in the enchanting and sometimes wiley Hawaiian islands has given her all the inspiration she needs to continue to pour out her heart and soul by way of words and music.
