I am a dance artist making opportunities for people to experience the connective and reflective power of groove, with special attention given to the serious play of improvisation.

Having grown up dancing socially at my dad’s rock band’s gigs, I discovered at a young age how exhilarating it can be to play with groove while connecting to others through movement. I’ve been fortunate to have amazing mentors who’ve helped me cultivate this outlook, inspiring me to contribute to others by creating performances, teaching and thinking about dance with groove as the base. Guided by this inspiration and a fondness for jazz and the American vernacular, I work to help people feel the groove and play in their experiences, connecting to history, themselves and one another in the moment and possibilities for the future.
