I was once a strict fundamentalist Christian. All in with the Jesus crew. Want to know how I went from Praise and Worship to woo woo? Start with my bestselling memoir, The Reluctant Tarot Reader or my trilogy, Love. Sex. Tarot. Or keep reading my Sub . . . you’ll get the story in bits and pieces.

I'll lean into my fundie past and love of solitude, books and women — to name a few. An overarching theme will be the adventures I’ve had as an intuitive for the last 20 years. If I travelled to Earth in the hopes of understanding humanity, being a Tarot reader has provided eons of knowledge. I’m grateful.

Stay up-to-date — or catch me later. FOMO isn’t my thing.
