Under the umbrella of Corbin Studios, I work professionally as a freelance writer, editor, proofreader and content contributor for online and print publications, private businesses and news journals. Creatively, I pen collections of short stories, non-fiction essays and more. As a visual artist, I work primarily in the medium of painting.
I am a former yoga teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area with a focus on the Ashtanga tradition while integrating all wisdom traditions and practices into one universal, accessible philosophy. I enjoy travel and being active outdoors as a road cyclist, mountain biker, hiker and back country camper. I enjoy a challenge, a good story told well, poetic visuals, inspiring voices and simple pleasures.
