I'm a freelance artist from Minneapolis, MN

I MAKE WORK WITH THE BODY.  My work is deeply rooted in human connection, physical touch and shared emotion. I graduated from Luther College with a BA in Theater/Dance.  I spent two years as adjunct faculty at Luther in the Visual & Performing Arts Department.  If you like reading about awards and stuff... I'm a 2017 Walker Art Center "Artist Initiative" awardee, 2015 recipient of the MN State Arts Board: Artist Initiative Grant and 2013 recipient of the McKnight Foundation’s Metropolitan Regional Arts Council: Next Step Fund. I have taught and performed throughout the US, Mexico, Europe & Asia and I'm proud to call Minneapolis home! My dance work has been recently produced at the Walker Art Center, Red Eye Theater, TEK Box, Bryant Lake Bowl Theater & Luther College. I live as a freelance photographer, choreographer and dancer.  My other professional dance experience includes performing with Mathew Janczewski's ARENA Dances, Live Action Set, Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater, Jim Lieberthal’s Footholds Project, Jane Hawley, Rosy Simas & Taja Will.

My work is inspired by my experience with athletics, the circus, working with young people, singing, acting, playing piano, black and white images and filmmaking. My favorite moments are those in which laughter reminds us that playing is human, valuable and healing. Thanks for your support.  Can't wait to make art with you.
