About Annie

I am passionate about intimate and sexual relationships because they are a foundational piece of how a culture operates. If we are able to own our part in the creation of the culture we are living, then we can create a cultural way of being that is life-affirming, ecologically regenerative and deliciously sexy. I have been intrigued by the intricacies of relationships since I began college and delved into ecological studies. Since acquiring a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Science from CSUMB I have continued my studies of psychosomatics and relationships via:
