ABOUT

Director, Performer, Choreographer, Detective. I seek and create with the hopes of waking people up to new truths. My stories deliver visceral impressions through what is felt but doesn’t fit into words—where just like in dance, imagination and subtext are key. Platform agnostic, I’m a sucker for genre mashups and hybrid forms. Imagine a heady cocktail of David Lynch and Anne Carson, bespoke suits, neon cut-out one-pieces, sweat, esoterica, and the wabisabi shelfscape of my end-of-week fridge. I execute projects similarly to choreography— through disciplined trial and error. I collaborate with artists (keen on risk) and performers (trained, untrained, disabled, able-bodied, mature, green etc.) to cultivate loud and subtle virtuosity. Recent experiences living in and out of the disability world have taught me about the potent mechanisms of stillness and pain. I use stylized dreamscape to investigate outlying worlds, searching for common ground and signals of luminosity. Ultimately, I’m committed to using a language we all speak: body.

Thanks for being curious about my work. Please read my Curriculum Vitae for a more formal career overview.

Sincerely,
