The physical aspect of my being began to flourish in high school as I became a highly competitive rower, eventually representing the United States at two Junior World Championships (one in Trakai, Lithuania, and one in Athens, Greece). Rowing and serious academic studies led me to Harvard University where I ceased rowing after a few months due to bulging discs in my back, crushing my dreams of competing in the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. After exiting the world of rowing I began to explore meditative spiritual and physical practices, principally Ashtanga yoga and Zen Buddhism, which helped me on my path to a more contemplative existence. These paths also conferred upon me the ancillary benefits of reducing most of the bulging in my intervertebral discs and leading me to a vegan and increasingly raw diet. I have dabbled in Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Anusara yoga, power yoga, backpacking and volcano trekking, Zen and Shingon meditation.
My love for travel led me to live, study, and volunteer abroad in Cuba, Nicaragua, Japan, and Brazil, with shorter stays in 12 other countries. My native language is English, and I am also fluent in Spanish and Portuguese. Currently my main physical disciplines are Ashtanga yoga, tai chi, running, lifting, and occasionally capoeira, though I love learning new meditative and physical disciplines. After graduating from school in January of 2009 with a BA in the Comparative Study of Religion I have been interning with a number of environmental organizations. As a traveler and lover of the arts, I have done some amateur photography and after having been told on numerous occasions that I should model, have decided to give it a go.
I am currently most interested in artistic work (paid or tfcd [raw files preferred :)] as well as modeling for yoga publications, and socially responsible companies with products I believe in. If you are a photographer, especially in the San Francisco Bay Area and are interested in collaborating with me, please send me a personal message to initiate a dialogue. Depending on the photographer's skill and vision I can be convinced to do tf shoots.
Long Term Projects
MY DREAM: I value freedom first and foremost, and the freedom which I find to be most awe inspiring is the freedom of unbound natural settings unexploited by industrialized civilization. To that end I hope to publish a portfolio of myself and other spiritual teachers and practitioners doing yogic and qi gong influenced poses in a variety of natural settings (especially tropical rainforest). Please contact me if you may have the means, skills, or contacts to set such a project in motion.
NOTE: I am COMPLETELY UN-interested in doing ANY type of "adult" oriented work. I am open to doing limited work in the nude so long as it is ART-centric. My financial situation is very stable so please do not contact me with lucrative offers for making pornography. Please do not add me if you are doing primarily erotic shoots with men. Thank you.
