I am a dance artist, dance maker, writer, and lover of
sun-showers (and other oxymorons) currently living in New York City on the unceded homelands of the Lenape people. I am obsessed with lineage, tradition, words, form, and context, and I work with movement, text, and collaborators. I have seventeen unfinished journals from childhood and all of them are in my apartment.
some things i've done/am doing
Currently, I'm showing my work through platforms like waxWORKS at Triskelion Arts, 7MPR Themed Dance Theater
at Arts on Site, Emerging Artists Theatre's Spark Theater
Festival, and Fertile Ground at Green Space. I am a 2023 Artist in Residence at MOtiVE Brooklyn. I'm also performing in works of dear friends. <3
In addition to my work as a dance artist, I’m an intern at Movement Research, an Operations Associate at Gibney, and a Digital Marketing Coordinator for Amy Jacobus Marketing. I was the Public Relations intern at Jacob’s Pillow in 2021, and the Business Administration Fellow in 2022.
I am an only child. I grew up on the north shore of Boston on the unceded homelands of the Naumkeag band of the
Massachusett/Pawtucket Tribes making dances in my basement, learning to sail (I am trying to get back to the fearless physicality of sailing), and loving to write.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, which sits on the unceded homelands of the Pocumtuc Nation on the land of the Norrwutuck community, in May 2022 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance and a minor in English. In the Five College Dance Department (including the dance programs of UMass and Smith, Mount Holyoke, Amherst, and Hampshire colleges) I studied Limón technique with Paul Dennis and contemporary and postmodern styles with Barbie Diewald, Aston K. McCullough, Jenna Riegel, Angie Hauser, Chris Aiken, and Bronwen MacArthur. Before college, I trained at Boston Ballet School.
In college, I was fortunate to perform in 14 student works, three iterations of Aston K. McCullough’s project witch box, a repertory project with Barbie Diewald, and New Second Line by Camille A. Brown. In 2019, I received the Friends of Dance Award for Dance Advocacy from the UMass Department of Music and Dance for advocating for the value and importance of dance studies in academia, and in 2020, I received the Chancellor’s Talent Award in Dance.
