ARTIST BIO

I have been teaching and performing circus arts for many years. I have studied under various other artists, including artists from Cirque du Soleil. Currently, I work and perform for Westchester Circus Arts, a family owned circus, in Tarrytown, New York. My specialties include lyra, aerial silks, hammock, trapeze, aerial spansets and cube. I have performed in various places including Tarrytown, Katonah, Brooklyn, and Central Park. 
Circus has given me a sense of purpose in life. It’s a place where I feel most welcomed; my home. Through circus, I have overcome many obstacles and built strong bonds with friends/coworkers, performers, and my students. Circus gives me strength.
