Artist Statement

I aim to create honest and purposeful dances that can impact both other artists and people who have never been exposed to dance.

My work is informed by curiosities and inquietudes about cognitive processes and social interactions: building on a foundation of scientific explanations of 'how', I use dance to ponder 'why', creating work that presents alternatives to the 'truths' and assupmtions we take for granted.
