Intimacy Coordination

As an Intimacy Coordinator, my greatest intention is to educate and advocate for all sexual expressions, identities, and experiences with the goal of diversifying representation in mainstream media. My hope is to empower audiences to discover and explore freedom in their sexual expression and identity.

Through pursuing my passions, I have cultivated a unique skill set in sex-positivity, gender inclusion, boundaries and consent, non-monogamy, kink, and alternative sexual lifestyles. I bring insight and expertise to supporting accurate representations of diverse sexual expressions in mainstream media. I am an enthusiastic learner looking to continually develop and add further expertise in the fields of theatre, film, design, sex-positive sexual health education, and youth facilitation. 

 

I approach my work in a way that allows my passions, experiences, and training to intersect within these artistically-rich disciplines, and perfectly coalesce in the field of intimacy coordination.

My Core Values 

  • Empowerment

  • Access, Inclusivity and Diversity

  • Creative Collaboration

  • Advocacy for Unique Representations of Human Sexuality

  • Authenticity

  • Innovative Processes

  • Mindfully Evolution of Best Practices and Protocols

  • Integrative Approach to Sexuality and Storytelling

  • Trauma-informed Compassionate Accountability towards Cultural Healing

I confidently advocate for actors in a way that mitigates conflict and supports clear, efficient communication between cast and crew. I engage with actors and industry professionals on a personal and empathetic level.

I bring innovation to the creation of modesty garments and methods for clothing removal, evolving from my extensive costuming and wardrobe background.

I offer a vast curation of contacts, resources, tools, and techniques for normalizing and destigmatizing sex and sexuality, as well as training in communication from diverse sources. I offer a broad insight into many aspects of intimacy, from the biomechanics and normalization of sex to human connection and communication.
