I am an Appalachian, multimedia movement artist from West Virginia that loves to break the barriers of the stage to challenge communities to reexamine their connections to the world around them. I am inspired by the ephemeral moments of nature; capturing them through live movement performances, film, & blending the experience of 2D & 4D through painting my body and moving within the landscape.


I find that my work is largely collaborative in nature, relying on the creative spark that emanates from the landscape around me as well as other dancers, musicians and audience members. I invite audiences to realize the larger world beyond themselves; to illuminate an experience of self awareness and contemplation. To engage the audience in a sojourn or journey not only within themselves, but also to the environment.


As an educator, I aim to grow the love of art and nature with my students, inspiring people around me to create movement and art that embody confidence, strength & resiliency. I want to create an environment that nurtures passionate movers who are insightful about their own bodies, the space they occupy, and the creative process. My favorite classes are with students who have never experienced the joys of dancing before. I curate their experience of dance to meet them where they are and mold to their interests and abilities; with the goal of instilling the love/appreciation of movement.
