Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, at 14 years old I moved to Los Angeles, CA, pursuing a career in dance and film.  There I graduated from CHAMPS Charter High School of Multimedia and Arts, and next studying Dance Teaching at Glendale College.

Among my many artistic endeavors, I was heavily involved with The Wallis Annenberg Center for Performing Arts.    There I participated in the Art of Choreography project for two years, and was a founding member of their first resident acting troupe, The Wallis Studio Ensemble (Madeleine Dahm).

Fall of 2019 I relocated to Chicago, seeking personal growth and the green of the MidWest.  I currently teach Ballet, Graham, Modern, Contemporary, and Tap at A Fairytale Ballet Chicago, and Volta Performing Arts on Milwaukee ave.  I am proud to announce my second year as Rehearsal Mistress and Co-Director of A Fairytale Ballet’s Nutcracker.
