About: Please tell us about your self. Some of our programs have benefits for art workers - please tell us if you are an artist and mention the most recent work/venue/space/residency where you have worked/developed your practice.
A dancer, collaborator, solo-artist and choreographer. Currently living, working, being inspired and inspiring in Portland, Oregon, after living in NYC from 2007-2012. In the summer of 2012, I was pulled to return to Portland (I spent 9 years of my life here prior to NYC from 1998-2007), something about the slowness, the space and the natural wonders spoke to me as well as the people of Portland are gentle, kind and generous- sometimes a little passive-aggressive, I digress. ;0

I create solo dance pieces influenced heavily by butoh. YEt I could never do it alone. Roland Toledo is a main collaborator, he has composed and/or arranged music for me 4 of my solo pieces. You see, my time in NYC acted as a period to delve deeper into butoh training mostly at wonderful CAVE and I was fortunate to have danced and performers with some pretty freaking awesome people interested in the same. Akira Kasai, Ko Murobushi, Ximena Garnica, Shige Moriya and a whole host of brilliant and curious beings. I finally started making solo dance work after a lifetime of studying with other people from hip-hop to capoeira, ballet and graham technique.

I really am a lover of movement, the body, sound and energy both outside us all and inside us all. It is a beautiful thing to open up and be opened to listen and be listened to to observe and be observed. I love the light and the dark and finding balance between the two but most of the time am sort of stuck at one end of the spectrum. I am a lover of film and music and art. I also love quiet times and raucousness. Being in the moment and taken a ride in life is fun and hard at times too, directing the boat but being guided by the river is also part of it all.

Oh, for what it's worth, I teach pilates, have a BA in Dance from Point Park College Pittsburgh, PA.,and am an alumnus of Interlochen Arts Academy, Interlochen, MI. I grew up in Michigan, that's where much of my family lives. I have three nieces and two older sisters. One of them is a a psychologist and the other is in the Army living in Germany. I am 1/4 Lebanese and make mean stuffed grape leaves.

I keep creating and sharing with anyone who is willing to receive. In someway it is my contribution to this planet. I compost and eat greens too. I love the moments when you catch yourself being conscious and hope to string them together to be a better human. Ultimately, i want to connect into something grander and live in peace. Not to mention touring my work eventually would be lovely. I desire the experience and gift of performing for an audience of other cultures. That would be very sweet. Like music is a language so is movement. I really only speak English so communicating through energy and movement is more of the ultimate.

Fascinated by the exploration of dance, art music and expression including transformation through movement/energy.
