Dancer. Choreographer. Figure Model. Spoken Word Artist.

Creative Approach: I am working, studying and offering my perspective to encourage the pursuit of encountering difficult emotions and truths about the self. I want to acknowledge and validate the ability for us all to think about our thinking. Mindfulness and Meditation soften and open me to build a resilience dividend. It is my responsibility to always work from this place of softness and openness. I am trying to figure out if liberation is the capacity of holding space and offering love when change is taking place.
