I am a 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 work with autoethnographic research and form, gesture, physicality, gender/femininity/feminism, tradition, language/prosody/poetics. I have seventeen unfinished journals from childhood and all of them are in my apartment.
some things i am doing
I've been 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.
In addition to my work as a dance artist, I’m the Operations and Finance Associate at Movement Research, and Digital Marketing Coordinator for Amy Jacobus Marketing. I was the Public Relations intern at Jacob’s Pillow in 2021, and Assistant to the Deputy Director in 2022.
my lineage (just the facts)
I grew up an only child on the north shore of Boston making dances in my basement, learning to sail, and loving to write.
I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst 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. I've also performed in projects by Willow Green, Nikki Assanti, Julianna Massa, and Caroline Alter.
