Since moving to LA, I've pursued commercial acting, dancing, and modeling, represented by Lemon Lime Agency. I'm an ongoing company member and choreographic collaborator with Post:Ballet, Invertigo Dance Theater, Concept o4, and several other projects in the Bay Area and LA.
Commercially, I have done work for clients including Nike, ESPN, Fitstar by Fitbit, CBS, Nick's Swedish Ice Cream, and various clothing/ jewelry companies. I've been featured in Dance Magazine, Voyage LA, POPSUGAR, and Metro Magazine.
Early training and previous work:
I received my early training from Ballet San Jose School where I studied classical ballet, partnering, contemporary, and modern dance. I was selected as a student trainee and for four years had the opportunity to perform with Ballet San Jose Company, under direction of Dennis Nahat.
Over the years, I received additional training from The Kirov Academy and Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet.
I went on to pursue higher education at Alonzo King's LINES Ballet BFA program at Dominican University of California. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with honors and had the pleasure of performing works by Alonzo King, Maurya Kerr, Amanda K. Miller, Christian Burns, Gregory Dawson, and Aurturo Fernandez.
After graduating, I stayed in San Francisco to pursue my dance career. I first joined Ziru Dance Company with whom I toured in China and performed works by Yuri Zhukov, Robert Moses, and Christian Burns. After, I joined a physically integrated company in Oakland called AXIS Dance Company. There, I toured, performed, and taught physically integrated dance classes in over 30 states and internationally in Israel. I had the pleasure of working with and performing works by Bobbi Jene Smith, Maurya Kerr, Alex Ketley, and Marc Brew.
I went on to join ODC/ Dance Company where I contributed choreographically to the creation of new works by KT Nelson, Kimi Okada, and Brenda Way. I had the absolute pleasure of performing as a soloist in Kate Weare's "Giant" for which my cast was nominated for an Isadora Duncan award.
As a choreographer, I've created original works for schools including Berkeley Ballet Theater and New Ballet Studio Company. I also choreograph for dance film, music videos, and stage performances.
