About me


I trained at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London from 2014-2017 where I obtained a First in the Bachelor of Arts degree program specializing in Handbalancing and Hand-to-Hand as a flyer. Accompanied by my disciplines, I have also been refining my acrobatics, straps, group acro, and general aerial.

Alongside training at the National Centre, my background consists of general circus, modern dance, and improvisational theatre. At the age of three I was introduced to the Actors Gymnasium in Chicago where I trained aerial and acrobatics, and through countless shows I gained a solid foundation of performance knowledge.

Although handbalancing is my most researched discipline, through my experience I found that I thrived more in the creation and performance processes with the ensemble of a circus production.
