My passion for physical expression and a connection to nature have been the means for my self discovery. I grew up in the Northwest and through a myriad of activities: skiing, rock climbing, triathlon, hiking, martial arts, and movement theatre, I have explored many methods of moving in the world. All these activities, including the practices I now teach are methods of self-exploration: how the physical can illuminate the mind and how the mind can transform the body.

I can often be found climbing trees and running barefoot through the parks.
