I received my BFA in dance from the University at Buffalo and was a scholarship student at the Joffrey Ballet School in NYC. Out of school, I worked with the Tracy Anderson Method Studios where I was a personal trainer and group fitness class instructor at both her NYC and Los Angeles locations, as well as traveling the world with private clients. I returned to dance in 2010 with the Missouri Contemporary Ballet of Columbia, MO. While with MCB, I taught dance and fitness locally at Wilson's Fitness, Dancearts, the School of Missouri Contemporary Ballet, and Yoga Sol. At the end of my tenure with MCB, we performed in the Great Friends Festival in Newport, RI with the Island Moving Company and John-Mark Owen. I went to perform in NYC for John-Mark Owen Presents... Requiem, a cinematic ballet set to Mozart's Requiem. I then returned to Newport, RI, where I played Dracula in an interactive ballet taking place in the Carey Mansion, where the original Dark Shadows was filmed. I am currently working on the Nutcracker with IMC where I will be the Cavalier, as well as the Yorkville Nutcracker in NYC, where I will perform the Arabian. I've recently taken the position of Dancer Liaison for Island Moving Company, and am serving as the representative of the dancers in speaking with the office as well as the IMC Board. I have begun doing fitness workshops that I have created at Aull Pilates in Middletown. I am in the process of finding a time slot to have a regularly scheduled class and am looking into opening my own wellness studio in the area.

I'm not even sure when I saw my first TED Talk. I'm still so blown away by the whole thing. I truly believe in this thing. I think the concepts of TED are changing the world and are becoming the new way that we do things. We are all trying to figure it out, but coming to this place of open forum discussion where you hear the developments and discoveries of the greatest minds on Earth. It's mind-blowing. What a cool way to have such a major revolution. We just decided to sit down together and share with each other and engage with love, joy, and gratitude. How simple. How profound. How effective. It's a beautiful thing to see. I'm so happy that it's happening and am filled with so much joy and gratitude to be a part of it.
