Bio

I am a native New Yorker, and started my formal dance training at the Long Island High School for the Arts.  My Summers were spent, as a Dance Staff Intern at the Usdan Center for Performing Arts. After high school, I continued my classical training at The Ailey School, the official school of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. While there, I studied Ballet, Horton, Graham-based modern, Jazz, and African, and graduated with high levels from the Professional Division Certificate Program in 2013. The sixteen hour dance days were tough, but I would go back in a second! I also toured and performed with the Ailey Student Performance Group, and had the honor of participating in an Ailey Company/Ailey Student mentoring program. I’ve had the pleasure of working with choreographers including Robert Battle, Peter O’Brien, Jeremy McQueen, Matthew Rushing, and Amy E. Hall.  In 2014, I relocated to Los Angeles, where I turned my focus toward acting. I have had the privilege of portraying characters and telling stories in web series, promotional videos, and online commercials. I also currently share my knowledge and love of dance in weekly dance and fitness classes, write music, and enjoy adventuring around Los Angeles in my spare time!
