Lynn Yamada Davis
Lynn Davis retired as an engineer in 2015. Until the pandemic, Lynn, who is also a volunteer emergency medical technician with her community First Aid Squad filled her retirement answering first aid calls. When the pandemic hit the US in March 2020 and she was in lockdown, her son, Tim, who is a videographer, wanted to keep his skills fresh so he decided to make 30 videos in 30 days. He filmed me and my husband doing daily chores such as walking the dog, pruning bushes, filling the birdfeeder and me making meals. The lockdown lasted longer and Tim and Lynn decided to continue making videos but it was easier to do cooking videos as they had a quiet & standard “set.” Tim started posting on TikTok around June 2020. He went to Washington, DC the weekend of July 4th and he called Lynn and told me that their “bacon, egg & cheese” video had 13,000 views. And the rest is history.
