Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, my dance training began at The Chicago Multicultural Dance Center under Homer Hans Bryant. I attended and graduated high school from the Chicago Academy for the Arts where I majored in Dance and was accepted into the William Louis Gaines Chapter of the National Honors Society. My studies took me to Purchase , NY where I graduated Cum Laude from Purchase College at SUNY in the Conservatory of Dance program where received a degree in Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and was accepted into the National Society of Collegiate Scholars for the Purchase College SUNY Chapter. While at Purchase I had the pleasure of training abroad at Korean National University of the Arts. I have performed works by Randy Duncan, Nick Pupillo, Gregory Dawson, Kevin Wynn, Kevin Iega Jeff, Johnathan Alsberry, Preston Miller, Gary Abbott and Terrance Marling. My passion for the art of choreography and dance are evident in my ability to communicate emotions, struggles and triumphs through the beauty of body movement.
