I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and I moved to Boston after college to live an interesting life. I seem to have largely succeeded. I’m a Licensed Massage Therapist and Reiki Master/Teacher with a part-time private practice in the Boston area. I'm also an experienced administrative and technical professional. I play and teach West African drums and percussion with The DrumConnection, New England’s premiere hand drumming school, and I'm the school's Office Manager. I've performed as a dancer and actor with Big Moves, an organization devoted to promoting size diversity in dance. I occasionally teach dance workshops and classes, read voraciously (mostly online), knit a lot, and enjoy life as much as possible.
