My body of work includes an extensive background in the arts as an educator, professional dancer, choreographer, artistic director, and adjudicator. I travel the country judging for various dance competitions, working with talent scouts and dance showcases. I also teach master classes and choreographing for several universities, conventions, workshops, studios, and professional organizations, which allows me to colloborate with a wide range of working artists on the cutting edge of trends in the dance industry.
I continue to dance and choreograph professionally. Highlights include Cabaret, Grease, Guys and Dolls, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Oklahoma, and Little Shop of Horrors, as well as dance company work, television, industrial shows, commercials, and video work.
I have danced with the Whitewater Opera Company, and was a MAC Cosmetics Dancer. I most recently danced in the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra's million-dollar production of its annual Yuletide Celebration. I have also choreographed and been featured on PBS's award-winning children's programming, and serve as the Resident Choreographer for Sophisticated Productions.
