I am a New York City based dance artist, yoga teacher, and pilates instructor. With an inclination toward the absurd, I seek to illuminate the underbelly of consciousness by cultivating compassionate listening and deliberate consideration through performance practices.
I began formal dance training at 13 and went on to train at The Royal Winnipeg Ballet School Professional Division. After attaining a B.F.A. from The University of Montana in 2012, I moved to New York City. Shortly after I began working with B.S. Movement and Raja Feather Kelly’s the feath3r theory. I've performed in works by various choreographers throughout New York and abroad.

In the era of confusion between what's real and what’s false, the ability to think is vital to negotiating the world. My work aims to wake audiences up to the complexities of the social, political, and ideological framework in the United States. Popular culture has taught us the right way to feel, do, and be inside of our own experience. The capacity to articulate our own individual experiences has been outsourced to self-help gurus, yogis, and life coaches. By addressing this commodification of experience, I hope to ignite curiosity on how we author our experience of the world. I embrace the gray area over things that are black and white. We constantly think we know something to be what it is when in reality, it’s just an idea. My work celebrates the in-between, the state before something comes to be, and embraces the nature that nothing is as seems - my work like the world is in constant flux.
