adventures in being

Hi, welcome to my website where you will find information about Chen style Taijiquan (Tai Chi), and Chinese internal martial arts. I have found training in these arts to be extremely enriching in my own life, and I am passionate about sharing them and demonstrating them as systems that develop real martial skills.

My journey in movement arts began in earnest in 2002 when I started practicing Capoeira, a Brazilian movement art. Around 2005 I because interested in exploring the inner dimension through meditation


When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be

               - Laozi


In 2008 I discovered what was for me the perfect synthesis of these two themes of embodiment and meditation, when I started practicing Taijiquan (Tai Chi) with Master Wang Hai-Jun. I immediately fell in love with this art and I have been learning under Master Wang ever since. Although I did have a hiatus in my training for a while, due to underlying biomechanical issues in my body. For more information about that little detour in my journey, check this link. 

​Training Tai Chi has continued the journey with my body I started with Capoeira, and has taken me further and deeper into presence, awareness, aliveness, pleasure, and joy. It continues to be a revelation and I am always intrigued to discover the next stage in this path. Taijiquan has also become my primary meditative practice.


To see a world in a grain of sand 

And a heaven in a wild flower 

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand 

And eternity in an hour
