I am a storyteller, creator and visionary aka- consciousness inspirer. I have lived and thrived in Los Angeles for the past decade, originally I am from Colorado. I love the journey of unraveling the storyteller within me, how characters and story have shaped and molded me through the years and continuously inform my life. Aside from my artistic pursuits and creating my own material, I travel, hold book clubs, throw gatherings, yoga out, take photos and enjoy this stage of my life being married. To have a partner hold you, support you and love you while striving and continuously growing through life and work has been the most beautiful gift given to me in my life. I am a huge advocate for the real l-o-v-e. :)
