In the Summer of 2007 I packed up life as I knew it into 2 giant suitcases and landed in the Pacific Northwest for the first time. Born and raised on the east coast, I came to Seattle for an opportunity to dance for Spectrum Dance Theater and since then I have found myself on dozens of stages, studios, and countless other creatively transformed spaces. I follow the inspiration, whether that brings me to dancing, modeling, singing, or otherwise, I love discovering where a new project might take me.
These days I am rehearsing and performing with Coriolis Dance Collective, modeling, and willingly tangling myself up in any number of side projects. When I get a free moment you can find me doodling, thrift shopping, hot yoga-ing, geocaching, going to concerts, or just rocking out in my apartment by myself. I like to keep moving!
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with your creative ideas. In particular, video and voice work are areas I’d like to explore next. I am not afraid to make a fool of myself and dance at Pike Place market, pose on building ledges, and climb in trees and fountains for an artistic vision.
