I grew up dancing in Illinois and came east to earn my BA in Dance at Middlebury College ’05.  Since then I’ve worked with many artists, including Jane Comfort & Company, Kate Elias, Rebecca Pappas, Hannah Dennison, Polly Motley, El Circo Contemporaneo, Tiffany Rhynard’s Big APE, David Appel, and Lida Winfield.  I’ve had the opportunity to tour throughout Mexico, Cuba, Qatar, Europe and the USA.  With grant support from NEFA, Dance Films Association, The Field, The VT Arts Council, The Flynn Center, The VT Arts Endowment Fund and The National Endowment for the Arts, I’ve shown my work in venues such as Dance on Camera Festival/Film at Lincoln Center, Bates Dance Festival, Dixon Place, The Flynn Theater, The Ionion Center of Kefalonia and The Rococo Theatre in Prague.  I live with my family in New Hampshire, where I continue to work as an independent artist and practice social work, organizing with communities for food justice and racial equity.
