Heather loves directing content production for SuperLife almost as much as she loves instructing yoga. Her perspective on yoga and life is to seize any opportunity NOW to do what you can, where you are with joy. Yoga is a powerful tool for longevity, healing, and wellness. Heather guides people on their own unique journey of keeping their bodies young and vibrant in the Malibu area, and she occasionally gets everyone to bust out a yoga pose at the SuperLife office. Using her Master’s in Communication and a decade-long experience in the communications industry, she’s fanatical about creating clear, fun, life-changing content for SuperLife. If you have a topic you’d like to see the SuperLife team cover or if you have media requests, e-mail her at email@example.com.

We love her passion for healing the body through nutrition (and the new recipes she’s always passing around!).

Miguel Berumen is Darin’s modern day Robin. When not diving into scientific research and producing materials for the website, he travels the globe with Darin in search of Nature’s finest superfoods. Miguel brings a ‘road-less-traveled’ mentality, even willing to go where there are no roads at all! Before joining SuperLife, he managed the Vitamin Barn in Malibu and did three years of distance learning at the School of Natural Healing in Orem, Utah. Miguel continues to research and study further in the areas of agronomy, ecology, nutrition and cooking with the understanding that there is no “one way” to health.

Briana has almost a decade of experience within the health care industry. She brings unique insight to the SuperLife team as she has truly “seen it all” while working in the ER when it comes to the outcomes that poor nutrition and lifestyle choices can have on our bodies. She’s passionate about “preventative health” and she believes it all begins with the food we choose to eat. Briana is constantly researching and creating new content for the SuperLife website and social media pages and is always finding a way to keep our readers engaged and team meetings light-hearted and fun – but you’ll see her smile biggest when she’s getting creative in the kitchen and photographing new recipes with organic ingredients or traveling around on her next adventure, skiing, hiking, surfing and exploring the world.
Favorite Superfood: Strawberries
As the creative mind and graphic design genius behind the new SuperLife logo, website design and merchandise – Cruz brings an incredible new element to the team with the perfect insight we’ve been looking for. His life motto: Live Simple, Help others and Stay Active Outdoors. He has traveled far away from home in search of the perfect surf and has immersed himself in various cultures while living in other countries, exploring the world and appreciating his surroundings with a true passion for enjoying the environment he lives in. It’s his fresh perspective that has allowed SuperLife to get to the next level. He may not have known what turmeric was when we met him – but he’s quickly absorbing everything Darin has to share and is inspired to help us spread the SuperLife message through beautiful designs and his expertise in the world.
