I was raised in Louisiana and moved to Salvador, Brazil in 2007. I have worked with acupuncture there in a community called Alto da Sereia for three years. It is a 'morro', a hill in front of the sea - an alternative community of fishermen, artists, dancers, musicians, and young families. The neighbors are all very colorful! Next to my house that I am renting, I have a healing clinic in a cooperative project that involves the neighbors. We are always hosting interesting people from around the world.
