I was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, and attended the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts. Abroad, I practiced and performed with the Joffrey Concert Group, Nederlands Dans Theater, the Royal Swedish Ballet School, Göteborgsoperans Danskompaniet “NuDans” Exchange, and the Ballet Junior de Genève. I received the Presidential Scholars award in 2015.

After travelling, I returned to New York, earning my Bachelor’s degree from Columbia University/Barnard College as a Dance major. I moved with artists including Yin Yue, David Dorfman, Caroline Fermin, Jodi Melnick, Marjorie Folkman, Caitlin Trainor, Allegra Kent, Maguette Camara, and Rebecca Bliss.

Along the way, I’ve created digital media content, interchangeably playing the roles of producer, director, videographer, editor, colorist, and score arranger — making films with many of the organizations whose paths I’ve crossed. Most notably, I produced Ballet Junior de Genève’s “BJtv” for their 2015-2016 season, and have been MOVE|NYC|’s Media Content Coordinator since 2017, spearheading their long-form 5th Anniversary Virtual Celebration which premiered in 2020.

My research gravitates to my bodymind system and its connection with the non-human: I move with houseplants, housecats, digital video cameras, computers, and bicycles.
