I (they/them) am a queer, neurodivergent, disabled fat white rope switch, performance artist and teacher.
I practice, teach and perform my blend of Japanese-informed rope bondage, somatic, theatrical and bio-mechanic techniques.
I bring a trauma-informed, neuro-affirmative and queer-centred approach to everything that I do. I work towards anti-racism and anti-ableism.
I'm passionate about consent, teaching people how to identify, communicate and honour their own and others' boundaries.
I'm passionate about enabling and encouraging the grounding effects rope has on all 8 of the senses.
I'm passionate about making rope accessible for people of all body shapes, sizes, mobility needs and health conditions.
I'm passionate about the healing power of trauma-informed, properly negotiated touch.
I believe that rope bondage is not therapy, and that movement and touch, alone or with trusted partners, can be therapeutic.

"One could say that everyone has their own dialect of erotic rope bondage."

“You can deny, if you like, nearly all abstractions: justice, beauty, truth, goodness, mind, God. You can deny seriousness, but not play.”
