I am a dancer, choreographer, and arts activist living in Chicago and finishing up a b.a. in dance and a b.a. in advertising at Loyola University Chicago. I am currently focused on producing and performing work that touches the humanity of people and communicates the simultaneous personal and communal stories that we all carry. My overarching goal throughout my career is to use dance to enhance the communities around me, specifically those that would not typically have access dance or possess the knowledge to feel included and represented in it. This has manifested in my career in many ways; I am a performer, choreographer, producer, and teacher, as well as a festival curator, arts administrator, program designer, and adaptive dance practices researcher. I hope to be an artist that fills Chicago with as much art as she can handle.
