I was born in Newark, NJ and raised in Jersey City, NJ. I began dancing when I was a middle schooler in 6th grade and attended a program called “JC Grooves” ran by Artistic Director, Samuel Pott. While working in the program Samuel Pott saw something in me and decided I should train at Nimbus Dance Works. I trained in ballet and modern dance technique ever since. I’ve officially been training as a student dancer with Nimbus Dance Works for six years and going on seven after I complete my senior year of high school in 2017. This past summer I attended the EMIA dance intensive in Kent, CT and the year before that, the 10 Hairy Legs dance intensive in Manhattan, NY. I’m a pre-professional student at Nimbus Dance Works and a company dancer at my high school (County Prep High School). I’m also a part of Nimbus Youth Ensemble and perform locally for the community.
