Curator + Sexual Culturalist + Author


Anthropology & History


Portugal, United Kingdom

With a portfolio career, as a curator + author + sexual culturalist, my profound curiosity in the human animal is rooted in my background in Anthropology. With a focus on gender, my interests have brought me everywhere from archaeological sites in Mexico, the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, a think tank in Venezuela, as well as chapters at cultural institutions such as El Museo del Barrio (NYC), Kindred Studios (London), and the truly unique Museum of Sex (NYC), where I served as Curator for more than a decade. My first book and memoir, "Sex in the Museum" charts not only the more than 20 exhibitions I curated, but also the personal side of working in the field of sexuality. I am currently writing my second book, "Mama Sex," an anthropological look at motherhood and sexuality.

I'm based in Portugal, but London, New York and Flagstaff, Arizona have been previous hometowns.

In many ways it feels like my whole life has been about inhabiting the unconventional. As a little girl with mixed heritage (my dad's family is Mexican, my mother's family is Eastern European), I always existed on the liminal edges of identity. Betwixt and between has been my north star. This feeling led me to anthropology, a methodology of understanding myself and the diverse wide world better. Later, my work in sexuality pushed many conventional boundaries and I continue to push society's taboos with my work on motherhood and sexuality.
