I am wanderer, a documenter and a creator of spaces. My life and work is centered on my spiritual practices and the rituals that they are based off of.
I was born in the high mountains of Santa Fe, NM and grew up surrounded by a rich community of beliefs and rituals.
I migrated to Northern Michigan during my high-school years (2009) in order to attend Interlochen Arts Academy as a Visual Arts major. While studying at Interlochen, I began exploring my fascination with the eastern rituals I had grown up around through travel and the rituals I encountered abroad.
Upon completing my Senior Thesis Exhibition, A Pause in Chaos, and graduating from Interlochen in 2011, I continued my global travels and thus expanding my knowledge of rituals and eastern beliefs.
I am a student (shishya) of Her Holiness, Jagatguru Sai Maa Lakshmi Devi.
"Maa is a master spiritual luminary with a mission of global enlightenment through practical spirituality and personal transformation, eliminating the pain and suffering of humanity." (Quote from Sai Maa's website: sai-maa.com)
Through my spiritual practice and my involvement within Maa's community I continue to explore the traditions and rituals that are the basis of all spirituality and the human experience within these practices.
I studied as an Individualized BFA student at California College of the Arts, in Oakland, CA. Within my program I explored traditions of ritual and the spaces in which these rituals take place through Textiles, Photography and Sculptural installations.
I am currently pursuing my BA in Psychology and MA in Infant Mental Health at Mills College, in Oakland, CA.
