I was born in the Basque Country of Spain to a Welsh mother and a Spanish father. My childhood was in movement, and I was raised in Spain, France, Switzerland and New York City. I continued to travel extensively throughout my early adulthood, driven by a hunger for adventure and novelty, married with a deep concern for the human condition and the state of the world. 

After graduating from the United Nations International School of New York when I was 17, I embarked on what would be the first of many journeys - volunteering with school kids in Ghana, at a refugee camp in Palestine, with Tibetan ex-political prisoners in India, asylum seekers in London, Berber musicians from the Moroccan Sahara, and protecting indigenous peoples' land rights in Bolivia.

Meanwhile, I undertook a bachelor's degree in Middle Eastern Studies, Arabic, and Anthropology at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London.

An accident I had half-way through my studies left me wheel-chair-bound for a few months. This marked the beginning of my journey shifting from outer to inner. My activism and human rights work was temporarily paused, and I began to immerse myself in the study of religions and spiritual traditions from around the world.

After my accident, I went to spend a few weeks in the Bolivian Amazon, and had a spiritual experience that marked the beginning of my switch to a vegan lifestyle and an interest in the esoteric.

Upon achieving my degree in London and nursing my body back to full health, I went to live with Jain nuns in their temple in Rajasthan, aspiring to learn from a philosophy of renunciation and non-violence. I then lived in North Peru with a shaman and his family, who showed me the ways of his lineage.

With the intention of integrating and cultivating all I had learned on my travels, I moved back to London and spent a year in quiet reflection and self-study, creating a temple out of a little East London flat and going inwards, whilst studying cross-cultural dream work, completing a certification in hypnotherapy, and beginning a three-year training in core and classical shamanism in Dorset, UK.

Currently, I lead campaigns and teach workshops to inspire people to live more sustainable and holistic lives, targeting anything from the environmental and health consequences of plastic pollution and animal consumption, to rediscovering ancient healing modalities to step into our life purpose. I am also working as a healer and apprenticing in a women's European shamanic tradition known as the Path of Pollen. I continue to live in movement and have no fixed abode, holding individual consultations and teaching workshops and retreats around the world.

I'm a writer, a dancer, a martial artist and a singer/song-write, and have collaborated with artists and musicians globally. You can see some of my music videos on my YouTube channel 'The Involution Project.'

I advocate for social and cultural change through my art, climate action and shamanic work.

The philosophy I've come to: 

change the world from within.
