I discovered astrology in childhood. By my late twenties (Saturn return) I decided to study astrology in earnest, alongside my artistic and social service work, and so found teachers and mentors to guide me. I devote much time to astrological research - both in examining its origins and testing its many applications. I'm on a kind of insatiable quest to experience what this ancient art has to offer. I approach astrology with cautiousness, reverence, and a lot of sensitivity (especially in client work). I'm motivated by a lifelong interest in the study of character and calling in people, essential nature, psyche, soul, and human resilience, and I like to think about the astrological factors at play in these expressions. See some of my mentors and influences here...

From 2009 to 2012, I served as president and vice president of the Washington State Astrological Association. Located in Seattle, Washington, WSAA is the oldest independent astrology organization in the United States. 

I hold a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree from The Evergreen State College with an emphasis in Transpersonal and Depth Psychologies and Expressive Arts. My senior thesis, Investigating the Vessel, was a synthesis of work combining a concentration in trauma and recovery, Jungian and post-Jungian studies, sculpture, dream analysis, and a movement meditation and self-inquiry practice called Authentic Movement.  

Other work I cherish includes providing one-to-one emotional support for women living in prison. I have more than fifteen years work and volunteer experience in varying capacities within the field of social services, including: mental health, hospice, physical and occupational therapies, and rehabilitation. As an artist, I work primarily in oil paints and encaustics (beeswax) and sometimes make jewelry and sculpture in metal or clay.
