I was raised in a small town in upstate New York, learning from my Mother's strength, and dancing in my Sister's footsteps. Before graduating high school I had attended two professional ballet programs and accumulated over 12 years of stage experience. Despite my love affair with artful movement I continued on my path to higher education. After a serendipitous introduction to the world of contemporary circus, I left university and followed my heart back
to the stage. At 20 years
old I began professionally
training as an aerialist, first at the New England Center for Circus Arts and eventually in Montreal, Quebec.
Since my feet first left the ground, I had the privilege of working with such incredible trainers as the world renowned Victor Fomine, Aimee Hancock, Sarah Poole, and Rachel Walker, to whom I owe enormous gratitude.
After my international debut in 2013, my work on dance trapeze earned me three awards from two prestigious international circus festivals, "SolyCirco" and "Youngstage International Circus Festival Basel." I was featured in the creation of an all woman circus show and invited to perform at the first ever U.S. international circus festival, "the Chicago Contemporary Circus Festival." I spent my winters performing in Palazzo Produktione's "Dinner Curioso" in Vienna, Austria and Berlin, Germany. I've worked in nightclubs from NYC to London, as well as appeared on TV shows like Germany's "Das Supertalent." Most recently I was integrated into the original cast of Cirque du Soleil's 2016 touring show, "Luzia." Every opportunity to fly has been an equally cherished moment to me.
I love seeking new challenges, learning from the stage, and I especially adore the uniquely beautiful dialogue that only exists between a performer and an audience!
"Aerialist, explorer, and open heart."
