performance

I began my professional performance career at age 16 with Eliot Feld’s Ballet Tech in NYC. I have since performed all over the world on the ground and in the air with companies including Elisa Monte Dance, Battery Dance Company, C. Eule Dance, Dzul Dance, White Wave Dance Company, ABCirque, Phoenix Entertainment NYC, Atomic Entertainment, Cirquetacular, and Indelible Dance.

With Sylvana Tapia I perform as aerial and ground duo RAVEN.

I frequently work on projects that combine my dance and aerial skills. My performance experience spans a wide range of productions: rock and roll shows, corporate events, nightclubs, variety shows, concert dance, classic circus, immersive theater, television, and more! My choreography has been featured in concert dance shows, for corporate events, and for brands.

aerial

As an aerialist I've performed in the US, UK, South Korea, Mexico, and the United Arab Emirates in a wide range of venues, productions, and special events. I especially love combining aerial with dance, theater, and live music.

       
     
choreography

I create thought-provoking experiences for my audience, often blending aerial and dance. I'm passionate about producing site-specific and transmedia works. My dance-aerial piece "been thinking..." was voted audience favorite at the NYC10 spring 2014 festival. Creating custom performances is a specialty of mine; my work includes a spy-themed aerial ballet for the SpyGirl Pictures launch party, a site-specific dance for an art opening, a 1920's-inspired aerial fabric act for a wedding, contemporary ballet and aerial collaborations with Ballet Inc, site specific choreography featuring a cast of twelve for the Wix IPO party, and original aerial and dance pieces for the bands Cordis, Earthside, and Huff This.
