About me

My performance adventure has been more than I could have imagined. After years of circus arts training in both New York City and Montreal, with coaches from Cirque du Soleil, L’Ecole Nationale du Cirque and Circus Warehouse, I have realized my childhood dream of flying without wings.

Highlights include performances with musical artists as diverse as gospel singer Tamela Mann, the Grammy Award winning R&B group, The Winans Brothers, and Hip Hop superstar Kendrick Lamar. I was also honored to accompany the original Weathergirl Martha Wash on The Late Show With David Letterman, performing in the air as she sang It’s Raining Men on the 30th Anniversary of the iconic song. I spent several years on cruise ships touring the world while performing a variety of acts for diverse international audiences on Norwegian Cruise Line, Cunard and Silversea.

I live in New York City where I perform and coach aerial acrobats of all levels.

Quality Performance

High quality, feature acts to pique curiosities & inspire all. Aerial performances include solo & duo works in a variety of apparatus; floor work includes dance and partner body balancing.

Circus Arts Technique Teaching

In my teachings, I am known for my ability to relay information, relate and express compassion for others while maintaining a fun and revitalizing experience.
