I am: an enthusiast, re-arranger, documenter, wordsmith, choreographer, somewhere between me and a composed version of myself. My multifaceted practice spans dance, written word and visual documentation (fine line drawing, sculpture, film and photography). To date, my work has been dictated my choreographic practice, however I have begun to search for a process that enables an equal dialogue between each of my interests. Conceptually, I hold a hearty continuous curiosity surrounding lineage and my place within a larger spectrum. I am interested in transforming space, shifting viewers to accept the unknown and to learn from their experiences.
