I have been in love with performance my entire life, and I was able to bring that life to any set I've been on.
My first love was dance, and then acting. It is a requirement when you are pursuing those genres to have headshots, which lead me to the modelling scene. As depicted by my being the young girl consistently striking a pose in almost every family photo album, I easily fell in love with the lens.
As an artist, I am also a poet and a writer. I feel this has allowed me to explore more than just the shot, but the depth and perception of what is being captured. To have that history maintained in either film or pixels is a true blessing.
I currently am a dancer, choreographer and dance instructor as well as Performing Arts major residing in New York. I was trained by both current and former members of the New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Alvin Ailey, the Eglevsky Ballet and more, and have had the privilege of working with Paul Taylor Dance Company choreographers as well as dance in front of Mr. Taylor himself before joining a New York City and Woodstock-based modern dance company and training with the NBA Nets Dancers.
