We need to take an honest look and see what we are supporting as a society. And then we speak out truthfully, and stand up for what is wise.
– Jack Kornfield
What are we supporting? And is that the direction we really want to be moving in? I find these questions immensely useful. They ask us to slow down and wholeheartedly consider what’s going on, how we’re contributing to it (or not), and whether there might be a better path to pursue.
I describe myself as an amplifier of hope and possibility. Part of my work involves building messaging platforms for ethical brands and kindhearted disruptors—change requires communicating a vision.
Our collective capacity for resilience, innovation, and compassion depends to a large extent on our individual levels of mental and physical wellbeing. So I also offer yoga/mindfulness to people who appreciate the link between contemplative practices and changemaking.
My life-work path has hardly been a linear one. A few shoes I’ve walked in (and in some cases still do): animal rights activist, volunteer veggie farmer, journalist, media strategist, copywriter, editor, yoga instructor, meditation practitioner, book publisher, communications director. Other highlights include an MA in Media and Cultural Studies from NYU, a 200-hour yoga certification, and a 6-month course on nonviolence.
Home is where the heart is, and I’ll always be a traveler at heart. I hail from NY and made my way to Amsterdam in early 2017, after forays through the US, Latin America, and Western Europe. I’m registered at the Chamber of Commerce in Amsterdam (KvK #: 68364458).
