In an ongoing effort to introduce audiences in my new East Coast home to my work I am thrilled to be showing short works at multiple venues this fall: October 29 at 7pm I have a work in progress showing
through Movement Research Open Performance at Eden's Expressway, located at 537 Broadway, 4th Floor, Manhattan November 17 at 2pm I have a second work in progress showing at Dance New
Amsterdam, 280 Broadway (entrance at 53 Chambers St.), Manhattan November 24 I'm showing in Williamsburg Art neXus’ WAXworks at
Triskellion Arts, 118 North 11th Street, 3rd Floor, Brooklyn
In order to continue to make art that is authentic, intentional and well-crafted I need to reach out for some support.
My current work has a very stripped down-basement of the bar-rock show-raw, aesthetic, so I don’t need a lot. I just need studio space. At $10-$20 an hour space rental fees add up fast. Please consider making a donation of any size to allow me some room to work in.
I have decided to partner with New York Live Arts as a fiscally
sponsored Associate Artist.
This makes it possible to for me to once again accept tax-deductible

This August The Field sent me to Earthdance for an Artward Bound Residency
OMG. Creative Paradise. I haven't felt so completely myself for such a long time.
The woods, the staff, our facilitator and an amazingly talented, smart kickass group of ladies all injected me with so much strength and renewal I'm completely reinvested in getting out there and kicking some arty ass in the most generous way possible.
While Earthdance has some gorgeous studios, I found myself even more inspired to do daily videodances in the woods. To share with you a taste of this magical experience I am posting a few, randomly chosen, unedited moments.
What unites us as human beings is the commonality of our emotional lives. As an artist I believe that in examining and sharing my personal stories I am creating a space for spiritual solidarity, an opportunity for important conversations to begin and sometimes communal release of our oft unexamined and unexorcised inner recesses. Well aware that memoir has a tendency to slide into navel-gazing I pull away from the intimate details of my story in favor of exploring the psychological terrain created by those experiences.
I have a BFA in Dance from Cornish College of the Arts and I make body based work in dance, film, performance and installation.
