At times, I feel I am a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Small but fierce. Playful yet strategic. Unafraid to pounce on the unknown whether it is cultivating the future or drawing from the past. I think of my work as fragments of my being. My movement is physical and direct with hints of risk. But is always grounded in unique aesthetics. The nature of this style frees my imagination and provides opportunities for happy accident and grace that influences my choreography. Drawing from narratives of human experiences, my work is theatrical, uncanny and at times darkly humorous. My intention is to create works that speak to the soul.
