I Like a Firm Handshake

I like a firm handshake.

I believe our world deserves our strength. That we are made to move in ways that astonish us, lifelong. That physical movement can be a spiritually seismic event. That breath and sweat are doorways to the heart—noise cancelling headphones for the symphony of our original, singular DNA. That ultimately, the metric that matters is joy.

California born, New York bred triathlete and yogi, artist and writer, fitness and wellness industry master instructor and consultant, trainer and life coach, fire-escape gardener, earnest shower-singer, travel-loving citizen of possibility. My center of gravity is a full-bodied pursuit of joy. I catalyze clients and communities to craft lives and enterprises that embody joyful creativity.

I'm into poetics—broadly defined—as it plays out in language, music, bodies, and in the ways movement unlocks imagination. I am inspired by artistic and entrepreneurial creativity and the buzzing conversation the world is having about bodies, communities, and craftsmanship.

And you?

Holler At Me.
