My name is Annalisa and I am from San Diego, California. I have grown up with a strong love for the beach and swimming in the ocean. I am also extremely creative. Whether it was learning to draw, play the piano, performing in musicals and not content creation, I can't go a day without getting my creative fix. I have a love for styling, photography, and social media marketing. Instagram and my blog (salteebutsweet.com) have been a way for me to express myself in a way that I never thought possible.
I graduated from SDSU with a bachelor's in marketing in 2017 and I now work for Reef in their corporate offices. I love being apart of a company that is based in San Diego and loves the beach as much as I do. From sustainability to the mindset I truly feel aligned with the company. I also do freelance content creation and I have found that flat lays and product shots are some of my favorite photos to take!
My history with Midori goes back to 2014 when I was a senior in high school. I would stock the website to see when they would have sales and obsess over the current ambassadors. Why? Because for once there was a bikini out there that actually fit me. I had always struggled with bikinis and feeling comfortable in my own skin and when I finally found a company that not only fit my body but also aligned with my values I was hooked. Since then, I applied to be an ambassador quite a few times and then FINALLY I got the email asking me to be apart of an upcoming photoshoot. This kick-started what is now an amazing relationship.
