I am a dancer, creator, and educator based in Upstate South Carolina, recognized for my dedication to utilizing movement and dance elements to empower individuals of all backgrounds. Through my work, I strive to inspire both dancers and non-dancers, as well as students and fellow educators, to embrace the art of dance and its creative process. Employing techniques such as improvisation, I facilitate the expression of thoughts, feelings, actions, and positivity.

My artistic practice incorporates various elements including body shapes, movement dynamics, levels, energy modulation, and spatial awareness. These tools enable me to convey ideas inspired by literature, the natural world, historical contexts, and human emotions, enriching the narrative of my performances and educational endeavors.

An integral aspect of my approach is informed by the neuroscience of learning and memory retention. This understanding informs my pedagogical methods, allowing me to create experiences that enhance students' academic understanding and deepen their connection to their own bodies. Witnessing the impact of my work on students' academic progress and self-awareness energizes me and reaffirms the importance of movement in education.

In today's fast-paced world dominated by fleeting electronic distractions, I am driven by a belief in movement as a more profound tool for both educational success and emotional well-being. Through my artistic and educational endeavors, I aim to champion the transformative power of movement, fostering a deeper appreciation for its role in enriching our lives.
