I began dancing at age 4, studying ballet, jazz, and gymnastics before moving on to ballroom. I had the honor of training under world-class coaches, and with 3 partners won 13 titles, including Southern States International Latin Champion, Can-Am Rising Star Latin Champion, and North Coast International Latin Champion. I've been touring for over a decade with Deney Terrio of TV's Dance Fever, performing at venues that had included Radio City Music Hall, Madison Square Garden, and the Bellagio and MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and have shared the stage with Village People, KC and the Sunshine Band, and Kool and the Gang. I work extensively as a choreographer in all styles of dance, and have appeared in several TV commercials. I continue to coach, compete, and judge on the ballroom circuit.
