I explore and express things that cannot be done with words, in hopes of opening the eyes of others to concepts and thoughts that would not have been seen before. I create for emotional release and to push boundaries of ideas. I choreograph what creates a release for me and hope to do the same for my viewers. I explore these thoughts through dance to reach a higher understanding of something that I cannot verbally grasp.
