Bio

I facilitate energy healing using Reiki, ThetaHealing, and intuitive guidance. I write fiction, essays, and memoir, and am currently seeking representation for my first book, a queer coming-of-age memoir.

As a teenager I quit high school to unschool. This choice was informed by my upbringing in the liberal faith of Unitarian Universalism, my grief in witnessing social inequity and environmental destruction, and my desire to contribute to a more just and beautiful world.

I have a BS in Integrative Design from Gaia University, and an MA in Social Transformation from Pacific School of Religion. I live in Santa Cruz, CA with my wife Nikira and our dog Jesse.
