I have been reading cards since I was 15 years old, and began my professional career over a decade ago in Jackson Square, New Orleans. I did not expect to be swept into the art of reading cards, life impelled me toward it, and the tarot has become a root in my spiritual practices. I also love teaching the cards, and I am currently putting together a unique tarot guide that I intend to publish in the next year.
I love international cultures and have lived abroad in Taiwan, Germany, and England. My travels have taken me backpacking through South East Asia, India and Sri Lanka, North and Central America and Europe. I believe that this life is an adventure, whether riding a motorcycle through jungles, or managing students in a classroom.
As an educator, I also have taught English as a Second Language for over 12 years. During this time, I designed and managed a service learning course for East Asian college students who are visiting the US that prepared them with a resume and cover letter and volunteering experiences to better understand local business culture.
I love writing and have produced articles for magazines and copy for professional business websites.
I am a part of a costume and puppetry troupe called Risk of Change that gives me the chance to explore interacting with the public in unique characters at events such as the Oregon Country Fair. I also have a puppet named Gary the Unigoat who does his own professional readings. He can be a great part of events as well.
I also ordain weddings when requested. A reading is included in this service.
These other fields relate to my varied skills in reading cards, and have enhanced my communicative style of teaching courses in tarot.
