Born in the year of the Dragon, I am a native New Yorker whose ancestral roots span several countries: Germany, Guinea, Ireland and Wales. In the words of Thomas Paine, "... my country is the world, and my religion is to do good." Dancing since age three, I gained my first professional performance opportunity touring with the Clive Thompson Dance Company at age eleven. From that point on, my dance training has ranged from Afro-Brazilian, Afro-Cuban, Ballet, Burlesque, Graham, Horton to House. I have trained with many great teachers between Oakland, CA and New York, such as Tania Santiago, Reginald Ray-Savage, Cecilia Marta, Kory "Kato" Watkins and Ana Marie Forsythe. One of my passions lies in choreographing, and some of my choreographic credits include Andy Allo's Hooked music video; Le Produit (national French commercial); Gone at Crowded Fire Theater, San Francisco, CA; Concord High School's production of Zoot Suit and Guys and Dolls in Concord, CA. Adding to the world of dance, I am also a commerical actor and print model. My client list includes Amtrak, Ridgewood Savings Bank, SONY Playstation, PBS, Nike, Captial One and Jello-O to name a few.
