I started moving as an awkward 7 year old with turned-in, hyper-extended knees and no sense of rhythm. I kept moving as a teenager, intent on achieving, overachieving and becoming. I grew into my own power in moving as I began to discover that I could find new answers about what it feels like to be alive through moving. I challenged my limits in moving freelancing as a dancer in San Francisco - allowing myself to be seen, trying new ways of moving, surprising myself at the places I could go and still always striving to do and be more. Over the years, I've taken pauses, gaps, and found other loves, but still I move. I come home to myself in movement, deepening into my own understanding of dancing, and always letting the dancing deepen me.
