“I am a mover. I am a creator. I am an advocate. I am an educator. Each of these roles keeps me seeking for humanity in movement. I believe there is nothing more beautiful than honest movement that has been carved by experience. I am drawn to mindful dancers who move without inhibition and who are willing to release themselves to the process. I create work based on personal investigations that evolve into an expression of the human experience. I am passionate about making the art of dance approachable while maintaining its integrity. My ambition is to transform performance spaces into a haven where both the performers and spectators can thrive.”
