As a performer, I currently work with Merián Soto and Leah Stein, in addition to my involvements with idiosynCrazy productions. I am also currently engaged with a collaborative multi-tiered performance practice with NYC-based dance artist Jesse Zaritt. Previously, I have danced with Marianela Boán, Tania Isaac, Charles. O. Anderson/Dance Theatre X, Keith Thompson, and Kate Watson-Wallace. My own choreographic work has been supported by the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage through Dance Advance, Philadelphia Live Arts Festival, Susan Hess Modern Dance Choreographers’ Project, the Community Education Center, Philadelphia Dance Projects, Dance New Amsterdam, and New York Live Arts. This work has often been performed in Philadelphia, and has also toured to Seattle, Minneapolis, Pittsburgh, and New York. In 2008, I founded idiosynCrazy productions, and currently serve as one of its directors, with Shannon Murphy and Shavon Norris. In 2012, I received a Pew Fellowship in the Arts.
