I am a yet to be defined artist. Which in my opinion is the best type of artist. What does define my work is my use of the following: Classical, Modern & Contemporary Dance, mime, clowning, acrobatics, sleight of hand/ illusion, acting, Comedia Del Arte & Film. Some how these things came to be the building blocks for my work and have allowed me to lead a career in the art world with no boundaries. I have acted on large television shows and danced for renowned dance companies alike. I have street performed on almost every continent, and worked with russian circuses. I have studied under the some of the greatest teachers of our era. I am a Saltimbanco, and a clown, a dancer and a film maker, a juggler and magician. But that's not really what I am. These are all tools that have shown me what I really am. An environmentalist, an friend, a traveler, a helping hand and most importantly a human of tomorrow.

My TED story
My work entails the use of a fiercely pure imagination, bravery, humility, patience and exactitude. My job is to look at the problems we have in the world and form solutions without words so that a trend can be set. If there is a solution that is already there, then it's my job to spread that knowledge in such a way that anyone from anywhere can connect with the information being given. The result doesn't usually end with a literal translation. Instead it speaks to the inner child and allows people to walk away with a better sense of themselves and the state of humanity. My goal is always to help people understand the human condition, and to help everyone find a common place in which we can all coexist peacefully. How do we teach people without words? That's what I do, that's my art, and my tools give me the ability to speak to people of any race, language, and age. It's all about the kids. We are all kids. I just never stopped playing, but I play hard.
