I began performing as a pre-teen and spent those early years on stage in musical theater productions and dance concerts all over the Central Coast of California. I attended Allan Hancock College and Santa Barbara City College, where I studied not only multiple styles of dance but theater arts, acting, and singing. In 1990, I graduated from Allan Hancock with an Associate of Arts degree in dance.
From 1990-2005, I worked extensively in the musical theater, stage, and drama fields as an entertainer, choreographer, educator, and production assistant. I am now building a career in film, television, and video to broaden my experience and expertise in the entertainment industry. I also continue to be a performing arts instructor.
