I'm a writer and photographer living in Oakland, CA. This is my personal blog. For some of my other projects, see my Linktree.
I have three yoga certifications: Bikram Yoga, Tony Sanchez Yoga Academy, and Ghosh Yoga Calcutta. From 2002 to 2018, I owned, managed, and taught at a hot yoga studio, Still Hot Yoga, in Atlanta, GA. I am now semi-retired, teaching a couple of classes a week at Oakland Yoga.
My early career was in theatre, having worked as a theatrical lighting designer, technical director, and performer. I began acting as a teenager with The Woods Hole Community Theatre and my professional career included stints with The San Francisco Mime Troupe, Seven Stages, and CORE Dance, among many others.
I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and I didn't disclose that to anyone until I was in my 40s. It was only after participating in a "Weekend of Recovery" men's healing retreat that I was finally able to speak about my abuse. I have since attended three more WOR events and I am currently a volunteer with the organization that hosts these amazing workshops for male survivors, MenHealing.
