Zarah Cabañas (aka VJ Lady Firefly) is a Video Director and Designer whose vibrant, musically-oriented aesthetic has led to collaborations with Dave Chappelle, The Roots, and Blue Man Group.  She has taught at Manhattan Neighborhood Network and New York University where she is a Film/TV alumna of NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Zarah and her husband are Co-Founders of Space Acres–a forest sanctuary in the Catskills which fuses their lifelong passions for music and video production, herbalism, and Filipino martial arts.  She is the Founder of Space Acres Botanicals, a member of band City and Forest, and a World Champion eskrimador.  Excited about the future, Zarah loves cuddling with her two amazing children and is thrilled to be at Homestead as a parent and collaborator.
