I am a peace activist who brings art and story to children of all ages. The Golden Fish Project is an extension of this work to transform community and individuals through peace, art, & story. 

I am a teaching artist and have designed art curriculum and taught classes with the Rainforest Art Project, San Diego Arts Institute, Arts for Learning San Diego, & the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center, Maui. 

To me, the world is a place where dream and reality combine through the power of the magic within ~ the imagination. I believe that magic is a part of all of us ~ and in order for it to be real ~ we must believe in ourselves. In doing so, we can make a positive difference in our community and the world.

The Golden Fish began as a vivid dream that came to life in March of 2007. Since then, I have shared this story and Zen Bunny with family, friends, my community, schools, and people of all ages from around the world.

Along the way, I discovered that sharing stories and art has the magical power to create peace.
