I am 20 years old and currently living in Columbus Ohio. I am attending The Ohio State University working on a BFA in Dance and classes in Dance Film. I am currently a Junior.
In March of 2015, I performed with the group Assembled Hearts at the MINT Art Gallery in Columbus on an independent piece called Patially Nothing + Wholly Something. I danced a duet to Simple Man at the Rochester Fringe Festival in September, and a completion of the piece, Ciper XY in Columbus in October. Then in November I participated in Dance Downtown: Of the Earth Far Below. I performed as a dance soloist and ensemble member of The Who's Tommy at the Short North Stage Columbus, OH in 2014.
I auditioned for and was asked to join the original cast of the Tony Award winning musical Billy Elliot on Broadway, playing the lead role on Broadway and Chicago's First National Tour from 2008 to 2010. My dance experience also includes Drums Downtown for The Ohio State University 2014, the lead role in Miami City Ballet's The Nutcracker 2006 and 2010, and additional roles in The Nutcracker with Seven Star School of Performing Arts in Brewster, NY and Paris Ballet & Dance in Jupiter, FL. I sang on the Carols for the Cure Album 2008 and 2009, and the National Anthem 4 years in a row for the Ohio Tournament of Champions. I also performed with the America's Got Talent finalists, Rocky Mountain Silhouettes at The Venetian in Las Vegas, in 2011. Although dancing, film and gymnastics provide a creative outlet for Me, I still enjoy the usual: free running, juggling, jumping stilts and skateboarding in my spare time.
