Shannon Upstill

Where did you grow up?

In Huntington Beach. I moved to San Francisco at 19 to go to film school, then moved to New York and worked at film festivals and as an independent film producer until my daughter was born. I then moved back to SF and started a small botanicals company with my friend, then moved to Maui and now I’m back here!

What’s your favorite movie?

My all time favorite is Fellini’s 8 ½, it was the movie that inspired me to study filmmaking. But if I were to sit and watch something 100 times it would be anything by Wes Anderson. Just look at our holiday card from 2014!

What are your passions outside of work?

Water. Ocean, lake, river or pool. I have a huge passion for music, film and of course my family. And I never turn down a flea market, especially on roadtrips. I’m also obsessed with my Westfalia camper van, which helps me get to these bodies of water and flea markets with my family while listening to music and talking about film.

What’s your role at Pfau Long?

My fancy title is Director of Operations but really I just make sure people are here and happy.

What’s your favorite thing about working here?

The people!
