Point Loma & Shelter Island’s Rising Stars

The heart of our mission at the SD Voyager is to find the amazing souls that breathe life into our city. In the recent weeks, we’ve had the privilege to connect with some of the San Diego’s finest artists, creatives, entrepreneurs and rabble rousers and we can’t begin to express how impressed we are with our city’s incredibly deep talent pool. Check out inspiring stories from Point Loma & Shelter Island below.

Allie Hobson

My story began when I started to look into my own health “imbalances.” In 2012, I had found out that I had a condition called Hashimotos, which is an Autoimmune condition that deals with Hypothyroid. I didn’t take action right away because seemingly everything in my body and how I felt was normal. Read more>>

I am a scenic and costume designer born in Guadalajara, Mexico. My work in theater ( has taken me many places around the world. Recently, I had the opportunity to work in Shanghai to revisit my costume designs for Punchdrunk’s immersive, film-noir inspired, “Sleep No More” (also playing in New York City). Read more>>

Krissy Sunflower

My love, Evan and I had a dream of creating positive ripples together in the world. Combining our gifts, passions, love of animals, mama earth, the moon, mantras and our deep drive to make an impact sparked an idea that we excitedly brought to life! Read more>>

I spent most of my adult life working on boats, and before that, I was the kid with way too many boats in the bathtub. Some would say I still am that guy! I’ve worked on the water in several capacities. In 1994, after I had spent about six months away from home on boat deliveries, I came home and decided to find work that would keep me there.

I didn’t begin reading comics until junior high school, where I witnessed a friend offering to buy a 25¢ comic for $10. After learning that people collected comics and they could increase in value, I wondered it, by reading them, I could figure out which ones would become more valuable. Read more>>

Kiley Brinson

When I was in high school and college I had no idea what I wanted to do. My dad got me a Canon camera, which I played with from time to time, taking photos of friends and close ups of flowers. He tried to encourage me to take the whole “photographer” thing more seriously, but all it did was turn me off on the idea. Read more>>

Ilisa Goldman

I have held the core values of stewardship, social equity, and environmentalism since I was a teenager. If you would have asked me twenty years ago what I would be doing now, I think my answer would have been very similar to the work I do today: fostering community and connecting people to the natural world.

Lovejoy Creations

Lovejoy graduated from Savannah College of Art & Design in 2003. Her goal when leaving Savannah was to earn a living as an artist and to be creative and active every day. She then spent the next seven years developing her style with the palette knife and bold use of color in Sedona, AZ. Read more>>

Jo Zukovich

I started taking yoga classes from a wonderful teacher Mary Dunn in 1979. I began teaching in the mid 1980s and became a full time yoga teacher within a year or 2. I opened several yoga studios starting in 1991 and also began training teachers. Over the years I trained quite a few teachers. Read more>>

Vena Lewis

For me life is a great adventure. The years raising my son was full of adventure. Each day telling a new story with all its comings and goings, twists and turns, ups and downs and its array of characters. Those years inspired my love for storytelling. Read more>>

Susanna Peredo Swap

I like to say that I’ve lived many lives in my short life. Through a series of “happy accidents” I’ve had the privilege to work professionally with some of San Diego’s most talented theatre folks, fashion industry gurus, musicians, dance companies, museums, galleries, and visual artists.
