Chani will be covering Events and wandering Oakland with her camera looking for all things art and community. People in outrageous homemade costumes particularly excite her. Chani Bockwinkel hails from the glorious corn country that is the Midwest. She has had a life long love affair with dance and graduated from Hampshire College with a dual degree in Photography and Performance. She had never been to the Bay, but she bought a one-way ticket and has been entranced ever since. If you were a tattoo what would you be and where? -I would be a giant brown bat on someone's thigh. Favorite spot in Oakland - Redwood Regional Park.
