I’m a dancer and model living and working in Brooklyn.

I make dances, usually solos, that address my relationship to landscape, queerness, my love of ballet, and formal composition. These things converge in my work. I'd call myself a minimalist.

I have presented dances at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival Inside/Out, New York Live Arts, La Mama Experimental Theater, Gibney Dance Center, and Brooklyn Arts Exchange. Residency support includes Fresh Tracks at New York Live Arts, Makehouse, and Brooklyn Arts Exchange.

Sometimes I perform for other choreographers, including Tere O’Connor, Brendan Fernandes, Jon Kinzel, Jennifer Monson, Cat Galasso, Renée Wadleigh, and Wally Cardona + Jennifer Lacey. I'm a regular at Movement Research at the Judson Memorial Church, and I study ballet with Janet Panetta. 

I recently presented two solos during sold-out concerts for music artist Fischerspooner. Additional commercial works includes music videos for Fischerspooner and Russian pop star Kristina Orbakaitе.

As a model I have shot campaigns for Banana Republic, Smirnoff, The Underwear Expert, and Homoco Swimwear. I have appeared in Dazed Magazine and Wolfy Magazine, and I’ve shot with Ryan Pfluger, Jonathan Daniel Pryce, Chad Davis, Jordan Geiger, Dusty St. Amand, and Erik Carter, among others.
