ALL ABOUT RISE
Actor. Dancer. Creative.
As a passionate, creative professional, I believe in putting my skills and innovation at the forefront of my work. My work and my world is informed by my personal and professional experiences as an Actor, Dancer, Choreographer and Director and is rooted in story telling. The world of storytelling always sparked my imagination. Whether that was within the worlds of Cirque du Soleil, Evidence, a Dance Company, Hairspray the Movie or the commercial worlds of Target, Dell, or Peloton to name a few.
