I am passionate about life-long creative education and experimental community, first co-founding the Arts Diaspora in 2008, then starting Nowhere’s Department of Inclusion in 2009. I illustrate Whimsadoodles: coloring pages for all ages, encouraging people to put aside the mind for a moment and play in the present.
I am currently working as a Mentor for 225 Academy, bringing 5-day Leadership Academies for 11-18 year-olds in countries around the world, focusing on Communication and Personal Development lessons. When I'm not exploring the world out there, I am supporting the ongoing efforts of the Canopy, an OpenDoor Co-living house which I had the amazing chance to help form.
I also teach, travel, write, sing, paint, dance, shoot photos, instigate shenanigans, and marvel at the mysteries of life, the universe, and everything.
