Who am I?
The question of a lifetime.
I'm an entrepreneur, dating and relationship specialist, writer, and coach.
I work with dope innovative individuals to
sharpen their relational skills so that they can experience higher levels of quality and agency in their love lives
educate them in the modern dating landscape so that they can make informed decisions, feel confident charting their own course, and spend more time enjoying themselves and less time wondering what their next move is
clarify their own metric of relational and romantic "success," and help them build out strategy based on that metric so that they're following a path that actually leads to where they want to go
highlight and mirror back what is lovable and extremely dateable about them again and again and again until they can't help but believe it
facilitate their best thinking
It's truly too much fun for everyone involved.
There are currently two ways to work with me: as a student in Magnetics Love School, and as a member of Magnetics Plus. Outside of running my programs, I write and speak on modern dating and relationships for various publications, host the (forthcoming) podcast Pillow Talk Radio, and run three interactive event series: Pillow Talks, Date Night Live, and Tinder Is the Night.
My two years as a matchmaker, and the thousands of interviews I conducted in that time, were essentially a crash course in understanding both the fundamental and the idiosyncratic dynamics of the modern lovescape.
Based on this continuing market research, I began coaching straight men in dating and how to better connect with women. I have since expanded the scope of my practice to invite in anyone of any gender identity and orientation who resonates with my work, who is either actively dating or currently in a relationship. Because let's be real - love is universal and we don't just go on autopilot once we've agreed we're in a relationship and the credits start rolling.
I graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University in New Orleans in Creative Writing and Spanish and Latin-Iberian Studies, and I'm certified in the psychology of happiness with Tal Ben Shahar, positive psych it boy, creator of Harvard's most popular course in history, and my number one intellectual crush.
I'm currently based in Seattle, I moonlight as a burlesque performer, and I've just taken up roller skating like every other girl on the Internet.
But enough about me, let's talk about you.
If you're reading this I'm going to guess you resonate with what you've seen of my work, and that you're entertaining the possibility of working with me.
Bravo, my friend! Way to take steps towards actively prioritizing the quality of your love life. Hoozah!!
If you've resonated with what you've seen, heard, or read of me, you are probably a lifelong learner type who has high standards for yourself and your life. You value creativity, innovation, and independent thinking and you don't really like being told what to do. You're a little bit irreverent, with a touch of eccentricity. You probably have an excellent sense of humor.
And, if you're reading this, you probably don't feel fully actualized in and totally stoked about your love life. You probably feel like there's so much more you could be experiencing in love, dating, and relationships, but you're not sure where to start.
Maybe you've been afraid to admit this, even to yourself. Maybe you'll talk about it with anyone who will listen, and a friend referred you to my website.
You might know exactly what this knowledge gap is but you don't know how to fill it, and most of what you've read on the Internet oversimplifies the most poetic, nuanced, and personal area of life into "three easy action steps that will make anyone beg to be with you," and it kinda makes you want to vomit.
You also might not have any idea what it is but you just feel like something's missing.
It's possible you feel "behind" in your love life, and like everyone else knows something you don't.
Maybe you're frustrated because you feel like anytime you're into someone they're not into you, and anytime someone is into you you're not into them. Curse the gods!
And maybe you feel out of place in your current social circles, and you want to feel empowered to attract and meet new friends and lovers whenever and wherever you want.
You might feel disconnected from your partner and want to invite deeper connection into your existing relationship, but you're afraid of rocking the boat.
It's likely that dating and romance is an area of life that stresses you out or leaves you feeling demoralized, and you wish it were an area of life that energized, inspired, and expanded you.
You absolutely want the genuine answer to be "GREAT" when someone asks you how your love life is going.
You've excelled in most other areas of your life, and you are ready to prioritize your personal life.
If you resonated with any of the above, what you need, my friend, is a compassionate kick in the ass. And I'm here to deliver it.
