At the age of 19, I realized that I was disconnected from my body and my sexuality, and commenced a journey of coming into wholeness with these parts of myself. At 21, I really became a student of sexuality, and continued to work more on my own sexual healing.
I lived in the jungle of Hawai'i for 13+ years on the active volcano, Kīlauea, where I healed deeply. I began having consistently amazing, mind-blowing, and nourishing sexual and sensual experiences. I then dove into my sexuality path as a teacher, supporting others in empowering themselves in this realm.
While living there, I was also an elementary school teacher for ten years at an alternative public school that I helped to create, as well as working with children in other capacities. I also did a lot of work with teens, mentoring youth in a therapeutic program and spearheading events for teens in my community. I lived off the grid the entire time I was there, on solar power, and a bit of hydro, collecting rainwater, living off the land as much as possible, and in other ways living in harmony with the earth. I humbly learned about Aloha from the Hawaiian people and from the 'aina (land). I support Hawaiian Sovereignty.
I have had various teachers regarding different aspects of sexuality, including learning sexual meditation practices, studying Taoist teachings of sexual health, learning about Tantra (which is actually not all about sex ;) ), learning about various other aspects of sexuality, and I have learned a great deal from the wisdom of my body. I have been supporting others in the realm of Sexuality since 2005. In late 2017, I moved from Hawai'i to Philadelphia to obtain my Master of Education in Human Sexuality Studies at Widener University. I graduated in 2019.
I am anti-racist, against fat-phobia, and against all forms of oppression. I understand the nature of intersectionality. I do my best to be able to see individuals and situations through a culturally-aware lens. I am happily queer and non-binary.
I have a partner who is a wonderful human and a beautiful man.
Since I went from being disconnected from my sexuality to having very pleasurable and holistically fulfilling, mind-blowing sexual and sensual experiences, I love helping others do the same.
