Dancer. Model. Performer.

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 Alana O Rogers Dance Company, House of Verlaine, and dancing as well as serving as Executive Director for Coriolis Dance. I also work regularly modeling for local businesses and designers and find myself willingly tangled up in any number of side projects. When I get a free moment you can find me doodling, thrift shopping, hot yoga-ing, hiking, geocaching, going to concerts - anything 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 continue exploring. I am not afraid to make a spectacle of myself and dance at Pike Place market, pose on building ledges, and climb in trees and fountains for an artistic vision.

What's your challenge for me?

I am independently contracted. Feel free to contact me about ideas, opportunities, and requests for casting materials.

I am thrilled to announce that Prom Queen's album-film, "Midnight Veil" is out in the world for your viewing pleasure! Please check out her website HERE for a viewing link and purchasing links via CD Baby or iTunes. I am honored to be featured in her track, 'The Golden One' along with Seattle belly-dancing troupe, The Tribellas. This Kickstarter-funded album film is chock full of Seattle talent and has been described as a "tour de force of high camp and unrepentant glitz" by City Arts Magazine. All hail the Prom Queen!

If you've picked up Jordan Matter's photography book, 'Dancers Among Us!' you've seen me! I had the good fortune of catching him during his brief trip to Seattle and the image we created survived all editor cuts! Check out his stunning work and grab yourself a copy HERE.

Follow the work and progress of New York artist, Charles Malinsky, and his series: The Black Coat Project. I had the privilege of working with him while in NYC in 2012.
