I am a writer, professor, and spiritual guide living near Lone Mountain at the edge of Las Vegas. I have studied at New York University, in Aix-en-Provence France, and at the University of Las Vegas Nevada where I received my graduate degree. Upon graduation, I accepted a position to teach in the UNLV Honors College.
My fiction, poetry, and non-fiction have been published in a variety of literary journals, books, & anthologies, and I have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize in Poetry. A small but joyful accolade: my story Mandorla wonLiteral Latte's Short, Short Fiction Award. The general themes in that story were greatly expanded upon into my first novel, for which I will soon be seeking agent representation. Some of my published works can by read by clicking below in the "Featured Poems & Stories" section.
My background in spiritual guidance and counseling evolved over decades of intensive shamanic work and focused learning from intuitive therapists, spiritual teachers, and indigenous medicine carriers who shared their wisdom, lineages, and direct transmissions with me. If you'd like to learn more about my offerings, visit my site, GrowWithSoul.
