The Tidal Team
Editor in Chief + Creative Director
Though she’s been splitting her time between New York and Los Angeles for 13 years, photographer Anna Wolf is a California girl at heart. But shoots have taken her all over the world, including South Africa, Thailand, and France. In 2014 Anna launched Tidal magazine, a place to showcase her work and the work of her peers, mixing New York sensibilities with a laid-back West Coast vibe.http://www.annawolf.com
Mike Perry is an artist, animator, creative director, brand consultant, poet, and designer. His paintings, drawings, sculptures, art installations, books, and murals are made to conjure that soul-soaring feeling of staring into distant galaxies on a dark night, long journeys into the imagination, and unstoppable laughter. He likes to cultivate collectives of celebration, exhibition, and revelation.http://www.mikeperrystudio.com
Haley is a Brooklyn-based art director and creative consultant from Long Beach, California. She previously worked as art director for NYLON and ELLE, and now partners with fashion and beauty clients on campaign and branding initiatives. She is obsessed with her cat/child Fish, listening to dozens of sped-up podcasts per day, and curating her secret Instagram casting board.http://www.haleystark.com
Born and raised in California’s Bay Area, Charlii Cruse moved to Brooklyn in 2015 with two suitcases, a love of vintage clothing, and a relentless entrepreneurial spirit. She’s a workhorse at heart and understands that the creative process and the backend of a business need to work in hand in hand in order to succeed. She hopes to one day own multiple buy/sell/trade stores in Brooklyn, New Orleans, Oakland, and L.A. that focus on vintage and sustainable fashion, saving the world one eco-friendly garment at a time.
Alison Lewis is a New York–based stylist and fashion editor. People always assume she’s from California, but she actually spent her childhood moving all over the U.S. Her work is influenced by babes of the 1970s, pretty much any uniform, and all things things Rihanna. When she is not adding to her collection of overalls she is making collages and eating ice cream.http://www.alison-lewis.com
Senior managing editor
Tarayn is a Brooklyn based video and photo producer and creative consultant. She previously worked as a creative director before branching off to commit to freelance. While glued to her phone for work, Tarayn enjoys chasing craft service with La Croix (Pamplemousse only) in hand, and petting strangers' dogs on the street.
Her upbringing in Oakland, California, was picturesque, but it wasn’t enough to keep Oona Wally from the enticing hustle and excitement of New York City. Since landing in Brooklyn, she has worked at a printing company, an artist agency, and for the last two years has served as WWD's booking and production editor, which requires a good amount of patience, balance, and, at times, a heavy hand. But it's OK—Oona's made for this. Her friends don't refer to her as Kim Jong Oona for nothing.
Mesmerized by the flashing lights, glitz and glamour of a photo shoot he saw in a Bollywood film, London-born and Miami-raised Muzam Agha, knew at the age of eight that he was destined to work in photography. Serving as casting and photo director/producer for multiple editorial and advertising clients, Muzam keeps his creative juices flowing by solo back-packing across the globe (he’s collected stamps in Guatemala, Nicaragua, Thailand, Istanbul and Costa Rica to name a few). His side gig: ghost hunter.
The Current Team
Megan is an East Coast born, L.A.-based trend forecaster, editor, and creative strategist. Her work as a writer and curious human sits at the intersection of what's now and next, yet usually results from being in the right place at the right time with a laptop. When she's not exploring the cultural implications of goat yoga, she's doing her best to live out every NYC to California girl cliche, one sound bath and tincture at a time.
Tawni is a photographer and photo editor based in Brooklyn. Originally a native of the West, its vibrant colors, laid-back style, and spontaneity are strong currents throughout her work. After working at both Seventeen and Billboard magazines, she became studio manager for Tidal’s Founder & Editor in Chief, Anna Wolf. With a bevy of skills from her work in publishing, Tawni helped launch CURRENT, Tidal Magazine’s online edition, in 2015.http://www.tawnibannister.com
Shelley is a Brooklyn-based stylist with roots deep in the heart of Texas. Wild haired, quirky, and with a penchant for finding beauty in details, she guides her art instinctually. Beyond styling—her primary passion—she spends her time traveling, alternating between coffee and wine, hunting for flea market treasures, and trying not to annoy her fiancé and friends with her gluten and dairy-free dietary restrictions.http://youngshelley.com/
Denise Fabella is a recent graduate from New York University with a Bachelor of Science in Media, Culture, and Communication, and has published work with CNN Philippines, Rappler, Inc., and Town & Country Philippines.
