I first began studying biology with the intention of learning about the Earth and addressing the issues that interfered with humans living in harmony with the Earth. I studied Biology couple years at UC Berkeley and began working in Biodefense at Laurence Livermore National Defense Laboratories.
At one point I realized the discoveries and technology needed for a harmonious Earth were already here, yet suppressed. It was at this time I experienced a dark night of the soul, quit working, dropped out and spend several years battling my demons, struggling through addiction, and learning who I was. From a space of rock bottom, ego death, and near death I was able to build again into a person I liked being.
That journey took me through completing my Bachelors of Science focusing on conservation biology and botany, teaching science to children, working as a university Laboratory Technician, and organizing for the environmentally supportive nonprofit the Tuolumne River Trust. The journey took me through marriage and then divorce as I began studying spirituality, and learning to integrate those teachings in my life, unable to be complacent anymore.
