In 2005, I worked at Yoga Journal Magazine in endemic sales. Since departing in 2009, I have been involved with many types of businesses: restaurants, local store owners, raw food co-ops, farmers markets, tourism, travel - and other types of media.

In 2009, I took a yoga teacher training, have been featured in a local San Francisco magazine (twice) Common Ground and one national magazine, Origin.

I have been written into the foreword of two national books ("Yoga Bitch" and an online yoga book) and drew international attention to the most crucial element happening in yoga today: yoga education.

I live one day at a time, try to be present in the world and I am aware of my surroundings.

I do not support entities that thrive on manipulation of other people's ignorance, or utilize universally frowned upon marketing tactics as the foundation of their business practices.

I am one of the advocates who stood against the entire U.S. Yoga industry in hopes to bring awareness into the credentialing of yoga teachers and yoga education between the years of 2009 - 2015.

Orphans, disability rights, productive yoga education, eradicating the corporate plague of unaccountability, ending dependence on oil and reducing the number of endangered species are the most important causes to me today.

I do not fear reality and I embrace the changing landscape as a natural aspect of living.

People are only as conscious as they want to be.

You can't force change, you can only present information to those willing to listen.
