CREATE.

As a performing artist, I create and share stories that use dance and spoken word to spread joy and liberation.

I am the Dancing Diplomat and storytelling and a desire to positively impact this world are braided together in a cord that runs throughout my work.  As a dancer, choreographer, and educator I seek to stir up the stagnant in an effort to open the way for more liberation and joy. My movement is informed by African diaspora and I often combine it spoken word to engage, entertain, and empower audiences. Whether as performer or choreographer, my process involves self-reflection, journaling, dialogue, and movement experimentation, celebrating the iterative processes that yield a product that reflects my mission.
