five years after the fall of the wall, we came to seattle from berlin. 
i spent the next 15 years in the city of grunge + coffee, mostly sleepless + confused.
in 2009 I discovered the healing power of the hawaiian islands.
art school BECAME HOME + the university of Hawaii gave me a bFA in graphic desigN.
the next few years i played IN THE magazine WORLD AT HONOLULU MAGAZINE
and SAE DESIGN as an in-studio GRAPHIC designer, before switching to freelancing. 
feeling there was something else i needed to be doing.
I DOVE INTO 200-hour Yoga teacher training, yoga nidra, yoga philosophy,
advanced teaching + sequencing, iRest® Integrative restoration trainings
and learned various forms + traditions of healing + ceremony.
i witnessed new dimensions open + saw glimpses of a place  i felt i needed  to share.
rooted in thE deep BELIEf OF OUR one consciousness + interconnectedness
i believe iN HEALING others through healing myself + vice-versa
BY Ritualistically rEMEMBERING + REMINDING OURSELVES OF WHAT WE ARE.
As a creative, I like to gather and blend tools that currently include
meditation, nidra, asana, ayurveda, sound, energy healing, plants, breathwork, writing + art.
but my path is ever shifting + evolving.

we are all just walking each other home  ::  ram dass

in love
