CHOREOGRAPHER / DIRECTOR
With a long list of credits from Broadway to film and television, my focused inclination for visual storytelling has been fostered over many years. I am always searching to illuminate new stories through movement, I look for the pulse of the piece, the heartbeat. I am equally excited by a tender moment on stage or a complex film sequence, I lead with passion and humor while I search for the balance and clarity in every beat.
I look to combine raw, explosive movement with subtle pedestrian transitions to inform moments where characters move because they must, because it is the only logical progression to ultimately support and elevate the story.
