(with its many twists and turns)
My life is a laboratory for creating conditions of intimacy, vulnerability, empathy and transference. I revel in the pure, simple delight of experimentation, both profound and mundane. I began my journey with a self-designed advanced degree at New York University in 'Intra-Personal Communication' , the study of how we speak to ourselves. Shortly after, I committed to developing my skills of communication with all other beings, places, things, and energies.
I initially established my practice in psychotherapeutic techniques, and later turned to art as a means to create interactive, cathartic experiences for myself and others. I have worked as a reiki master, hypnotherapist, sexual health activist, university literature professor and writer, in addition to my former life as an internationally exhibiting performance artist and researcher. Now I focus on the most direct and unmediated form of transformation I know: energy and intuition.
I believe that conscious transformation is the key to inviting magic into one’s experience of the world.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Intra-Personal Communication (Critical Theory and Creative Practices), a Post-Baccalaureate in Interactive Installation, a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture and Performance Art, a Post Graduate Research Certificate in Performance and Scenographic Studies. Additionally, I am a certified health coach, a certified hypnotherapist, a certified reiki-master, have worked as a group therapist for inpatient psychiatric care and outpatient crisis intervention treatment. More recently, I have participated in over 30 workshops and conferences related to alternative health & wellbeing, shamanism and transformative practices.
