I make dances as a way to stay engaged and try to make sense of the world around me. As I make dances, I ask lots of questions - of myself, and mainly of my dancers. Together we take apart our divergent experiences and find movement as a way to express the unspeakable things, the moments that get lost in everyday busy-ness. We also laugh, sweat and try not to take the whole thing too seriously. 

I've had the privilege of collaborating heavily with Project Tremolo producing original works in the Bay Area.
