An educator, author, and personal advocate, I am dedicated to providing education and expanding the conversation around pleasurable living. That’s a concept that looks different for each individual and which I explore the foundation of in my first book, On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More, published by Skyhorse Publishing in May of 2019.
I was raised communally and feel passionately about both researching and spreading information about human sexuality. I have written a Sex Ed book told from the perspective of my personal experience and the viewpoints I was raised with in my sex positive community upbringing.
Born in San Francisco, I’ve split my time between this urban metropolis and the family farm in Northern California. I was homeschooled until graduation from high school. After studying at my local community college, I transferred to U.C. Berkeley to study English Literature graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts. I spent my last semester of university studying at Pembroke and King’s colleges at the University of Cambridge.
I have over ten years of personal coaching experience and have been leading and assisting with communication-focused workshops events for the past five years. I also facilitate a weekly event in which participants learn about winning communication skills in a social setting. I was first trained in and began leading these events over 13 years ago.
With my closest friends at my side, I manage a non-profit dedicated to spreading surplus to communities in need in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. I grew up participating in this non-profit and now volunteerism is a central part of my daily experience and larger life philosophy. I believe that we all live in surplus and that there is, in fact, enough to go around. It’s just a matter of spreading it around.
