I am an Emmy Award winning tap and jazz dancer and choreographer. For the past six years, I have been performing with repertory companies in Chicago; Jump Rhythm Jazz Project and Chicago Tap Theatre. During that time I began freelance choreography as well for regional and college theatre, film, and commercials. I will be relocating to New Orleans as a choreographer, dancer, and dance educator in an effort to combine my passion and life journey in kinetic rhythm with the propulsive jazz culture of New Orleans.
