Moved to Sydney, Australia, in 2015 where I learnt so much and started to share my skills teaching what I know. I have worked as a pro-domme in the last 7 years, in both my old home and new and since moving to Sydney, I have opened new avenues into tantra and body awareness practices, and I'm really excited to share my story and experiences with you!
