"The first wealth is health."

           ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

I am an artist, creative producer, and partner in healing.  As an ayurvedic practitioner influenced by diverse cultures and traditions, I help people see themselves and the world around them in a different way.  My focus is on creating a community in which health and quality of life is valued most; where there is an understanding that the health of our own bodies and minds directly connect to the health of our communities and the world.  We are our own universe and our health reflects the health of the larger universe around us.

The early part of my career was spent in NYC as a photo editor, producer of still and moving images and photographer. Some of the places where I helped produce/coordinate content include: Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, and the Film Unit of Saturday Night Live.   Some of the places my work has been published include: Marie Claire, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Time Out New York, Jane, Fortune, The Brooklyn Eagle, Japanese Playboy and Vanity Fair.  I was nominated by Fortune Magazine for a World Press Organization's Joop Swart Masterclass. My photography work began as street documentary and evolved into studio and fashion.  My images have been used as content for live concerts and in 2004, I was the creative director of content for The Beastie Boys “To the 5 Boroughs” tour.  

 Over the past 10+ years, my work has evolved into a place that includes healing arts, specifically Ayurveda & Yoga. Learning how to take care of myself and family was the original goal when I began my studies in 2011, but  after completing Kripalu's 750hr Ayurvedic Training program, I have taken my time, expanding it out into the community and am now teaching classes, workshops as well as offering private consultations and hosting Salon gatherings.  I have furthered my Ayurvedic studies with Maya Tiwari's Wise Earth School, Dr. Vasant Lad, Dr. Claudia Welch and Dr. Robert Svoboda.  

I began studying yoga seriously in 2007 and completed a 250+ hr Yoga Teacher training with Briala Silva in 2012. I am also a certified Vaginal Steam Facilitator. 

My photography work has evolved  to include more studio portraiture, alongside documentary and styled snaps. Art installations, in the form of "Chai Walla" and "Women's Day tablecloth project" (TK), help connect people who may not otherwise meet. 

I continue {to love} exploring people, inside and out.
