Artist, Creative Director, Coach.
I started training at Ballet Hawaii as a ballet dancer in The Vagonava Method at the age of 6 with Shamil Yagudin, late Artistic Director of the Bolshoi Ballet. At 12, I started training in Balanchine Technique under Robert Barnett. I was offered my first professional job with Tau Dance Theater from Peter Rockford-Espiritu at the age of 15.
I've trained/danced with: Ballet Hawaii, Marin Dance Theater, Tau Dance Theater, SF Ballet/School, The School of American Ballet/NYCBallet, Suzanne Farrell Ballet and CIncinnati Ballet (just to name a few).
In my twenties, I trained in the art of bodybuilding under the tutelage of the "Godfather of Bodybuilding" Charles Glass, along with Former Mr. California NPC Contra Costa Middleweight overall winner Shawn Lasley. For a cumulative 5 years I was a manager at Equinox West Hollywood and West LA and then later ran a start-up called THE WALL Fitness for 2 years pre-pandemic.
I'm a certified coach, group fitness instructor and master ballet teacher with a lifetime of experience in the art of movement. But at the core of my being I am an artist who uses my creative gifts to help people see and reach their life goals while looking and feeling beautiful.
