About Me


I am a born and raised Buckeye from Columbus, Ohio! I studied dance intensely from age 11 and I spent my primary school years choreographing for local community theaters and my high school productions. I graduated from Point Park University in Pittsburgh, PA, with a B.A. in Dance and a B.S. in Entertainment Management. Since moving to NYC, I have been blessed with creative opportunities as a performer and a choreographer, and I continue to seek out the opportunities God has set for me with enthusiasm and hope. (Isaiah 55:12)

I’ve worked under the direction of Gregory Dolbashian of The DASH Ensemble, Kyle Abraham of Abraham. In. Motion., David Leventhal from Mark Morris Dance Company, and the Tony Award Winner, Michael Rupert. I have performed in some the industry’s iconic works including Mark Morris' Grande Duo and Martha Graham’s Steps in the Street. Currently, I work closely with the New York City based Director and Choreographer, Jim Cooney. Among many of the projects include working as a Performing Artists and as an Associate Director/Choreographer for Transcendence Theater Company's leading program, Broadway Under The Stars, in Sonoma County, CA.
