I have been interested in the mysteries of life and our proper place in the cosmos for most of my adult life.
My studies in this area began in earnest in my early 20s when I was introduced to astrology by mother. After an initial period of skepticism, I began taking classes and exploring various systems of astrology, including modern psychological astrology, traditional Greek astrology, Uranian/Symmetrical astrology, and Indian/Vedic astrology. Through the years, my focus has always been on what works best and delivers the most reliable perspectives and results in my life and those of my clients.
This exploration was supported and expanded with a long-time interest in Eastern philosophies such as Taoism, Buddhism, and the Gurdjieff Work. In the 1990s, I began studying a traditional Japanese martial art form called Hakkoryu Jujutsu where I earned the rank of Shihan (licensed instructor) in 2005. I established and ran a small martial arts school for over 15 years, and currently train in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I have found that these physical disciplines provide a much-needed balance and embodied practice alongside the sometimes theoretical study of philosophy and metaphysics.
In early 2015, I was introduced to the Human Design system by a friend and fellow astrologer. My first reaction to seeing the system was something along the lines of “Oh, no – what is this? Another system to learn?”. I discovered that in Human Design, my auric type is a “Projector” which very specifically described how my energy was designed to work along with many patterns and characteristics of my experience that no other system had identified or had an explanation.
I began experimenting with this system daily and soon booked a reading with a professional Human Design Analyst which carried quite an impact, driving the knowledge in deeper. I was inspired to enter into formal Human Design training and eventually enrolled in the three and half year program with the International Human Design School and Human Design America to become a Professional Analyst and completed this training in December of 2018.
As a Projector energy type with over two decades of astrological study and full immersion in the Human Design system, I feel prepared to meet the needs of my clients and those wishing to experiment with this knowledge. I meet each person as the unique individual that they are, knowing that they are in fact the expert on their own life. My aim is to share this system in a practical and straightforward way, initiating the client into a deeper relationship with their true-self and inner authority.
