Flora is the Director for Curbsyde Productions, and there isn’t a time where you won’t find her looking for that perfect angle or a way to be creative. If it involves hanging out of a helicopter, the back of a motorcycle or something racing 6 inches from her head, she’ll probably have the camera in front of her . Her hair-brain schemes some how turn into reality, like riding two motorcycles on the worlds longest ice-road or doing an epic 34,000 kms in one summer, on schedule and on budget. Most likely, you will hear some of her compositions on the Curbsyde soundtracks. Her love for travel keeps her feet itchy, and she is not afraid to drop a motorcycle or two, in the name of adventure!
