PERFORMER

My body is a vessel for memory, experience, and sensation… and I want to capture your attention. As a freelancer, I put my heart, time, and energy fully into each project I accompany. I crave and thrive in projects with movement specifically made for film as well as technical, yet conceptual choreographies designed for live performance. I believe that with each professional experience comes significant growth to the individuals involved as well as the greater artistic community.

CHOREOGRAPHER

As a creator, I follow what excites me: relationships, people, memory, sites, humor, nature, culture and politics. I create to renew. I create to release. I create to reflect. I create to connect my mind with my gut. I create to practice patience. I create because I want to make you think. I create because I need to understand on a deeper level. I create to come home to myself. I create to share my discoveries with my community.

I may be young, but wisdom comes with all ages. I understand that different eyes see different things, therefore different bodies express uniquely different movements. I want to invite you to share the space with me in an inclusive environment. Open your mind to discovering new capabilities and interests. Find and refine your joy of movement. I want to guide you to become your most capable, all-embracing self. Let’s move together and be moved by each other. And if you dare think it- you’re not too old and it’s never too late.
