Before attending art school, I lived in a Tibetan Buddhist temple for two years. I studied Buddhist philosophy and psychology, yoga and meditation. Over the years, I have done several Vipassana silent retreats. I am also Yoga Alliance certified.
I work as the Mindful Movement Guide at Berkeley Forest School and as the Holistic Health Director for Bay Farm and Forest. Over the years, I've come to realize that one of my gifts is that of embodied presence.
As a performance, media, and intervention artist, I am constantly experimenting with the body's relationship to its surroundings. I read a lot of ecopsychology; this and my meditation/yoga practice inform my work.
