Thank you for visiting my page!

I am a spiritual activist, writer and teacher in Minneapolis. I like digging deep to write about how politics, parenting, current events, and more are as much “spiritual centers” as anywhere that goes by this name. In a world divided, I seek to not add to the divisions. Instead, through my writing, I seek unity, compassion, and connection.

I am currently writing my memoir, entitled Skin by Skin: A Soulful Affair, in which I have blended my personal story of transformation with elements of magical realism to make a story that is lighthearted at first touch, but penetrates deep down to the soul.

I Write:


-with curiosity, compassion and creativity.

-where the real world intersects the spiritual world.

-to create dialogue and discussion.

– to challenge and inspire.

-to share laughter at our humanness.

-to be of benefit in this world.

You can join me in Minneapolis for an upcoming event, or read my latest work.
