I am certified to teach circus arts to special needs children through Holistic Circus Therapy and am certified to teach lyra through ... CirqFit. I am driven to succeed. I love to learn and grow as I live. I am an extremely disciplined individual. QUALIFICATIONS: Lyra, cube, partnering routines, silks, stilts, pole.

Meet the Act
I once saw an aerialist at an Ozzfest and thought “That’s the thing!” I started taking classes and instantly fell in love. One class turned into two, which turned into five, which turned into “I want to audition for a show.”
I trained every day for a year to audition for Le Reve in Las Vegas. In tandem with my aerial classes, I took ballroom dance lessons, joined a gym and got a personal trainer. I went to the audition feeling prepared. I did not get a call back but I had officially established myself as a performer.

I own a portable rig. In the event I can’t rig indoors, I can still perform inside/outside with this rig.
