"As a creator, I draw from my experiences as both an acrobat and as a dancer, challenging how these two disciplines can be integrated and redefined in my own personal aesthetic. When I'm constructing my work, I like to work with the body as a sculptor would work with clay, manipulating ways to construct architectural forms and acrobatic structures that can communicate concepts, ideas and imagery, that can resonate with an audience."
