I studied Education at the University of Michigan and Law at UCLA, where I focused on Critical Race studies. I enjoy envisioning what the world would be like absent colonialism, and the ubiquitous influences of a white supremacist hetero-patiriarcy. In short - I see sex postivity as a site of personal resistance.

I've been a member of SPP for over 4 years. As many of you know I was the Community Director of Hedonisia Hawaii Eco-Community which was lost in the Kilauea volcanic eruption in 2018. As the Director of a sex positive ecofeminist community for 14 years, I bring sociology and entrepreneur experience to my position on the Advisory board as well as insights on intentional community management.

5 years ago I traveled to the US, in search of sex-positive and polyamorous communities. I met Gabriella, shared my ambitions and got recognized as authentic. Not even one month after that, Sex-Positive Belgium was born. Now it's a flourishing community with weekly events and 250+ active members. I enjoy spreading the word, and helping the different Sex-Positive communities in Europe get connected.
