Rachael resides in Hollywood, California. She is pursuing the knowledge and resources to open a restaurant on the east coast. Both her and her fiancé, an accomplished cook in West Hollywood, plan on combining their love of food and service to own their own establishment in the future. Currently she’s learning skills at a fine dining restaurant on Sunset Boulevard and taking classes with Ashworth College.

A passionate writer, Rachael has also been published in different articles on the web such as SimplySxy.com, AVN.com. She has accomplished her first written short story which will be published by Cleis Press in a book curated and edited by Asa Akira and continues to blog on this website as on outlet for her advocacy as well as an outlet for her creativity.

 

As a former adult film performer Rachael holds awards such as 2015 Inked Awards Starlet of the Year and 2016 Inked Awards Best Scene of the Year. Her proud and unadulterated voice as a pervious sex worker sheds light and dismantles the stigma associated with the sex industry.

Rachael’s free time from work and education are spent advocating for what has significantly touched her life. First of which is mental health. She is diagnosed with Bipolar 1 and Borderline Personality Disorder, two serious mental illnesses which she intensely blogs about holding nothing back. She volunteers with and fundraises for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

Another topic Rachael advocates for is alternative psychedelic medicine. A self proclaimed psychonaut - she supports the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS), a research and educational organization that develops medical, legal, and cultural contexts for people to benefit from the careful uses of psychedelics and marijuana. She also attends events put on by the Aware Project in Los Angeles. Their mission is to “balance the public conversation about psychedelics, spread accurate information, and give a new face to psychedelia”. Psychedelic therapy has proven to regulate her mental illnesses and help her to avoid psychotic episodes. They produce an undeniable healing that aids in her day to day functionality as well as overall peace.

Her blogs pertain to many different subjects but the main objective here is voice. The point of a voice is to be heard, Rachael writes not only to be heard but for anyone out there who finds comfort to know someone is listening.
