I am a writer, model, and Men's Wellness Advocate. Think of me like a sister from a different mister. A rebel with a cause, if you will. I focus on the individual as well as the collective, utilizing the science of neuroplasticity to educate others on how they can gain control of their thoughts, actions, reactions, and ultimately fulfill their life purpose. My mission is to provide fresh, new perspectives on how to build the life of your CHOOSING by providing actionable and insightful ways to rewire the brain with healthier programs.

motivational jardon that you never end up following. I'm here to
hold up a mirror in front of you, so that you take ownership of your thought patterns and decide how you truly want to live this one life.
I was born and raised in the proud city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. What makes the city so unique is the rich culture of hardworking, down-to-earth, fearless individuals that stand up for what they believe in no matter the difficulties they have to face. I come from a long line of intellectual and artistic individuals, who strongly value authenticity. Unfortunately, like many households, dysfunction was a part of my childhood. With a family
riddled with trauma, alcoholism, divorce, and constant instability, I witnessed the difficulties of relationships and life pressures between men and women. However, the one thing, unbeknownst to me at the time, that would shape my future was watching my older brother desperately navigate his way through life into adulthood.
But Why Men's
It deeply affected me as a young child to see the positive light that was bestowed upon my sister and I growing up. While at the same time, my brother was seen as an outcast for being “lost" or a "bad kid”. Even at a young age, I felt a tremendous amount of sorrow for my brother, with no understanding of how to help him feel loved and supported. Like so many men, I witnessed him stumble through life with little to no guidance. I deeply felt the pain, embarrassment, and unworthiness that he experienced, which had a tremendous impact on me.
Men quietly face enormous challenges without much focus or concern for their needs as human beings. Society has grown accustomed to the notion that "men can handle it themselves". With shocking statistics, such as that men are 4x more likely to commit suicide in the U.S. than women (Source: CDC), it's obvious that the health of men has been minimized and ignored. I strongly advocate that men matter too, face daily life challenges, and are in desperate need of a supportive community. Men need...
to feel supported in a safe environment, where they can develop their definition of masculinity that suits them individually. A healthy man equals a healthy society. An emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually healthy man is ultimately a great father, partner, friend, brother, son, etc... I push for awareness that men need more support by educating both men AND women through my published articles, blog posts, podcasts, speaking engagements, and outreach programs. Understanding, empathy, and open-mindedness is the only way to greater connection between the sexes. I passionately express the need to make empathy great again, enlightening individuals that we are all connected and share and receive each other’s energy.Read More
How Did It All
Before finding my purpose in guiding others towards a more fulfilled life, I had a successful 12-year sales career at some of the largest companies in the world, such as Cox Enterprises and Google. Even though I was at the pinnacle of my corporate career, I came to the realization that I was meant to do more with my time on Earth. No matter how successful I was, I could not shake the fact that I was not on the right life path. I was not...
fulfilling my life purpose to be a fighter for the greater good.
Knowing that the present is all we have, I decided to take the bold step in quitting my corporate career to follow my passion in guiding people to find the best version of themselves. For the sake of humanity, I work hard on moving others away from negative energy and avoid falling into the epicenter of its toxicity. I know with every fiber of my being that my purpose in life is to fight for the greater good with the foundation of making empathy great again in our society. And so K for Kira was born….
And the Fine Art Nude Photos...?
Instilling the value of art and culture was paramount for my parents when I was growing up. While my friends were off playing at amusement parks and Chuck E. Cheese, I frequented art galleries, museums, libraries, and live theatre. Though it might sound torturous to some, I loved every moment of it. I soaked up every experience like a sponge, which opened my eyes to completely new perspectives, philosophies, art forms, and creative expression at a young age.
With my father as a writer and my mother an artist, freedom to creatively express oneself was and always will be extremely...
important in my family. At a young age, I became very passionate
and drawn to dance as my creative outlet, becoming a ballerina before heading off to college. Classical ballet is hyper-focused on the body as an art form with movement, form, and lines as the creative expression.
My love and respect for the human form evolved into fine art nude modeling several years ago. I enjoy photography and finding new ways to hone in on my craft as the art form that it is. The human body has never been anything to be ashamed of or bashful about. After all, naked is normal. But it’s all about how it’s used as a form of expression and deliverer of empowering messages. I create with intention. The factors that make fine art nude photography an actual art form are the same things that make other genres of photography qualify as fine art. The control of light, form, texture, exposure values, and composition can all work together or be taken separately.
Fine art nude photography makes an artistic statement. The human form is interesting, sometimes complex, sometimes simple, and can be beautiful. Showing those aspects to others is what makes this genre art.Each photo is expertly crafted with purpose and meaning behind it, not only to captivate the audience but to stir up powerful emotional responses. My personal and intimate photography presents a rich visualization of the corresponding article. Human beings are biologically hardwired to engage and pay attention to captivating visuals. As it relates to my work in Men’s Advocacy and Life Guidance, I use the power of the written word with visual storytelling to persuade the audience to stop what they’re doing, look, read, and then process the message before them. It is done with the utmost precision, dedication, and consideration.Read More
