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. 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 December of 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.
