I have been tap dancing for 15 years and teaching for 10. Growing up I trained extensively with Gregg Russell, Ryan Lohoff, Mark Goodman, Cory Finn, and Julie Sizemore. I joined the Circle City Tap Company in 2015 and have performed in and choreographed for four shows with the company: "The Rhythm Chronicles," "One Us," "Tapping into the City," and "Built for This." Currently, I serve as a performer, choreographer, and Pre-Professional Company Director for the company. In 2017, I was honored to be asked to join the faculty of the Circle City Tap Festival. My career in dance also led me to become a judge with Ticket to Broadway Dance Competition from 2015 to 2017. In May of 2018, I performed as one of the main characters in Tap24.7's show "TAPspeak" in Mesa, Arizona; in December of 2018 I performed in the Detroit performance of "TAPspeak."
