Documentary Film Producer and Director

Adv. Cert. Film Production, AD Graphic Design, B. Design (Communication Design)

Born in Vancouver, BC in 1970, Ina grew up in the 'burbs' of Metro Vancouver. She spent a good deal of her childhood travelling abroad with her family which gave her a genuine appreciation for social justice issues at a young age and the luck of having won the life lottery by being born in the True North Strong and Free. When she wasn't travelling throughout Europe (and not in school), Ina spent a lot of time camping in the BC interior where she discovered her love of the great outdoors and passion for photography and film. Her interest in documentary film was also inspired by her Dad, a part-time photography buff who couldn't stop bragging about how in 1971, he was forcibly removed from YVR for taking a photo of the Queen when he was supposed to be fixing her airplane.
