All about moi

Hello, beautiful! 


My name is Jia Luo, but most people call me Lisa. I am a visual storyteller, facilitator, and researcher who is passionate about education, creativity, and social-emotional learning. 

I document beautiful landscapes and people through different mediums of art including photography, film, digital art, and mixed-media.


I am fascinated with human behavior, which I did a deep dive in during my graduate studies in Educational Psychology at George Mason University and undergraduate studies in Economics at University of Michigan (go Blue!). 

For the past three years, I served as a videographer for the District of Columbia Public Schools, filming and editing videos of instructional best practices to train teachers and principals on what good instruction looks like.


I have also served as a teaching artist, facilitator, and curriculum designer for digital storytelling and arts-based workshops that focus on developing social-emotional competencies.


I love exploring and traveling this beautiful planet of ours and recently completed a four-month backpacking trip across Southeast Asia. I am an avid enthusiast of yoga, live music, home-cooked meals, and uncontrollable belly laughs.

Currently based in Carrboro, North Carolina, the places that I will always call home include China, San Francisco, the greater metro Detroit area, and Washington DC.           

My hopes for my work is that it makes you pause for a moment and to feel. Something - anything


I encourage you to stick around and check out my new work on my blog. You can also purchase prints of my favorite images and take a peek at my photography services here.
