a little bit about me

I live in Los Angeles and reign from the East Coast. I love distilling complexity down to its essence, making order out of chaos and turning the seemingly unattainable into the universally accessible. I believe that there’s beauty in simplicity and that through patience, awareness and a little elbow grease, we can create ease, strength and stability.

what drives me

Physical Movement. Balance in opposites. Self-Awareness/Exploration. Creative Problem Solving.
