About

As a professional ballerina for 14 years, I strove endlessly toward artistic and physical perfection. Now nearing retirement at the ripe old age of early thirty something, I work to re-invent myself. And what better place to do so than my new home, the great city of New York?

In the spirit of this bustling landscape, my pursuits have taken diverse forms: online college, interning in Arts Management, Stott Pilates teacher training, ballet classes with inspiring NY mentors, teaching, performing, writing, researching arts in the city, and more. I am still working to synthesize these endeavors, but inspiration and invaluable information strike at every turn. Tools to share with the artist and athlete who lies within any human…inspiration for the art of being human.  And perfection has nothing to do with it.

Life is hard: I believe in sharing meaningful thoughts, information, and images to enhance humanity through simultaneous substance and positivity (surprisingly rare). Real change comes from deep within, and this is how we can create a better world. Please join me on this journey…

    A very difficult art! I definitely respect your profession. Not many people can handle the demands or master the art of balance, gravity and equilibrium.

      Thank you so much! You nailed it. Like any art or physical skill, ballet takes a certain amount of natural talent and an incredible amount of work (probably more on the work end in my case, lol). You always search for perfection, and rarely find it. But what a simple life lesson and wonderful type of pursuit. Putting something meaningful into the world and touching people. Elevating humanity! Alas, I can’t paint to save my life. I appreciate the visual arts very much, mastery of light, detail, perspective and balance also…
