In 2002 Tavia followed in the footsteps of two generations before her, when she began working on the docks just as her grandfather and father had. Being a Longshoreman at the Ports of San Francisco/Oakland, with its unique beauty and breathtaking views, has inspired Tavia to pursue her other passion, Photography. She has combined her original photographs with her own artistic spin. Turning her photographs into photo-digital artworks.
