I was born in Orange County, California and knew from a very young age that dancing was my passion. Most of my days were spent training at a dance studio and competing at numerous dance competitions. I continued my training at California State University, Long Beach, graduating with my B.F.A. in Dance. While in school, I performed on my college dance team, perfected my modern dance skills within the dance department, and worked professionally with Los Angeles Movement Arts and the SYTYCD Choreographer Showcase for Tony Gonzalez. I am trained in ballet, jazz, hip hop, contemporary, modern, and tap and have had the opportunity to work with choreographers such as Chris Bailey, Deborah Brockus, Gerald Casel, Ryan Heffington, Lorin Johnson, Andrea Miller, Derek Mitchell, Sophie Monat, Sarah O’Gleby, Brooke Wendle and Charlie Williams.
I made the monumental decision to pursue dance in New York City. My film and TV experience have included performances on America’s Got Talent and the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. I have also done work on Broad City, Girls, and Orange in the New Black and recently as a swing dancer in the film, Hello Again.
I have had the opportunity to combine my dance skills with modeling where I modeled for Vogue.com in Rachel Antonoff, KENZO X H&M, T-Mobile, Google Play Music, Hot-As-Hell Swimwear, and walked on pointe in the Hot-As-Hell show in Miami Swim Week and in the Christina Ruales' show in New York Fashion Week. I have also had the incredible fortune to dance for Hermès in the All About Women Hermès Show in New York while holding my dream birkin bag and recently in Hermès heels in Miami for their Flamingo Party Fashion Event.
While in New York, I have continued my choreography and coaching skills. After being a member and captain of the Rosary High School Varsity Dance Team and captain of the Orange Coast College Dance Team, I became the Coach of the Rosary High School Junior Varsity Dance Team and was awarded Cheerpros Coach of the Year in 2012. I also enjoyed teaching and choreographing at West Coast School of the Arts and Evoke Dance Movement in Southern California. I am currently the Head Coach and Choreographer of the Columbia University Dance Team. I also teach dance and fitness at Steps on Broadway and Four Corners Creative, NYC.
