I currently live in San Francisco, where I have lived and worked as a therapist and artist for the past 30 years. I earned a Psy.D. from John F. Kennedy University in 2011. My dissertation explored gay and lesbian peopleís experiences with ayahuasca. I also have a masterís degree in Fine Art from the San Francisco Art Institute. My interest in exploring spiritual practices in the world has taken me to Thailand, Laos, India, Nepal, Ecuador, Peru, and Brazil. I am strongly influenced by Buddhist and Non-Dual thinking. In 1997, I was introduced to the practice of Santo Daime, a syncretic ayahuasca church founded in Brazil. I have returned to Brazil several times to explore this practice. I have found this to be a rich source of material for my artwork.
