MFA in Modern Dance (with an emphasis in Choreography & Lighting Design) from University of Utah.

Must-have item for life at Pearson

A willingness to try anything and a mindfulness to know when your activity plate is full. There are so many opportunities here and it can be challenging to pass one by.

Favourite place

The top of a ridge looking out over the Rocky Mountains, or a dance studio or a theatre.

Interesting fact

I have taught improvisation and created improvised performances in Bali and in Barcelona. I like to knit. And I LOVE strong coffee.
