Aloha, my name is Davyana San Miguel (they/them). My mom named me after my papa, David and the Greek keyboardist, Yanni. I was born on the beautiful island of O’ahu, but spent most of my years on Maui. Since 2018, Lenapehoking (Brooklyn) has been the place I call home and where I’ve worked primarily as a freelance filmmaker. Recently, my experiences have led me to becoming a line cook at Cotra Izakaya in Gowanus, Brooklyn.

I am working on two personal films, camgirl and no ka oi. Open to contract work as an editor, on a limited basis. Priority to projects that align with my style (experimental, animation, music). Please reach out via email, ig, text, phone call, zoom, however most convenient, if you are interested in collaborating. Mahalo nui loa.
