Personal Statement
As a multi-disciplinary artist/educator who travels frequently, I’m grateful for the sense of rootedness I have in Madison. This has become a grounding space for me. In the summers, you may find me swimming across Devil’s lake with my husband and fur baby in a boat beside me. In these blissful times, I feel most connected to nature’s call for preservation. So, I am always looking for passionate people and organizations to collaborate with on productions (film/ live performance) which draw audiences towards heightened awareness and action.

Upcoming Projects
Next up in Madison! Global Water Dances—June 15th. Seeking movers, facilitators and conservationists! —— My continual somatic research has led me to teach Qualitative Movement and Positioning for Actors on Broadway (Gibney Studios, NYC), 'Movement Explorations' for the UW Madison Continuing Studies Division, Intergenerational Creative Movement Experiences for The Rumpus Room Circus Arts School, and Gentle Expressions for frail seniors with Parkinson’s at Hope and a Future Assisted Living Home. I continue to develop my pedagogy as I embody my research. Off hours, I often find myself zoning into resources pertaining to any of the following fields: Neurology, Psychology, Anthropology, Mythology, Creative Writing Models, Quantum Physics, new findings on the Myofascial System/ Microtubules, and comparative arts/literature studies. I pay attention to how my body responds to new information/discussion, and creatively process through choreography, drawing, painting, and/or writing.
