Welcome

If you’re looking to safely create unique, story driven intimacy you’ve come to the right place! Whether you’re an actor, director, writer, producer, crew member, teacher, or intimacy professional – I’ve got you covered. I provide free resources, consultations, and long term collaborations with artists and filmmakers around the globe to rethink how we create and understand intimacy for the screen.

I am an intimacy coordinator because I love creating intimate stories. It is my life’s passion to develop complex narratives around sexuality, gender, and the intersectional nature of our identies which informs how we percieve the world. It is my sincerest desire for the intimacy in your film or tv show to be as golden as the blossoms of the acacia tree for which I am named. In fact, I want to help usher in what I believe will become the Golden Age of Screen Intimacy as intimacy coordinators become standard on set. I am personally contributing to the creation of this Golden Age through my uniquely fluid and dynamic choreography for extended scenes of intimacy, my innovative intimacy barrier designs, my lectures on intimacy in film and tv, my free education resources on Instagram, and my writings on film, feminist, and queer theory. On this website you will find my diverse offerings and experiences accessible to you as well as resources to learn more about intimacy in the performing arts.

Services

Interested in collaborating? Say hello.

Creative

Approaching challenges with strengths in perceptual reasoning and verbal comprehension, Acacia brings harmony to projects with their thorough vision.

Genuine

Delivering deeply personal work on topics including disability, gender, sexuality, and family, Acacia chooses to open up about their life to bring stigmatized topics out of the margins.

Passionate

Diving into each project with an infectious ardor, Acacia picks pursuits which maintain a level of exuberance for their work, driving them to create inspirational content.

“Because we spent so much time working with Acacia, pages that were sexy in the script became ten times even more erotic on the screen. I’d even go so far as to say that the intimate scenes became some of the easiest ones to film because we fostered such an open environment. They were even fun.”
