I used to live the high life in the non-stop, fast paced world of event and music festival production. I worked hard and played harder for long days and longer nights. An unstoppable force… until in a heartbeat my world turned upside down; the aneurysm I had unknowingly harbored in the center of my brain ruptured, putting me deep into a coma where I fought to stay alive for 6 weeks. Learning to walk, talk and swallow was just the start but the hardest battle has been working to regain my cognitive function.
I problem-solved my health like I would have in event production. During the ups and down of my 6 years recovery I came to understand that wellness is an ever-allusive destination. It is through being in touch with my creativity that I become most alive.
Learning to be in my body again has been an ongoing path of discovery, undertaking the laborious task of rewiring my neural pathways. Living with chronic pain after multiple surgeries and lying immobile for so long brought me to understand the body and its trauma patterns. I have witnessed how stress gets locked into connective tissue, and through breath, movement and intention I have peeled back the layers that have kept me bound.
I believe my story happened for a reason and the rest of the narrative is for me to write. My mission now, is to help people get in touch with their aliveness.
