I was born in Orion, Illinois and raised in Grayslake, Illinois.  I was enrolled in gymnastics and began taking tumbling classes at a studio that also offered dance.  Around 5 years old, I asked my mom to put me in the dance classes and thats where it started!  I danced competitively all through school, and often utilized the incredible dance institutions in Chicago during the summers.  

My first big job was touring with Rasta Thomas' Bad Boys of Dance which was almost right after I graduated high school.  Adrienne Canterna had seen me dance at a dance convention my senior year in high school, and from that,offered me a position on the company!  I would say my biggest inspiration in the dance industry is Mandy Moore.  Taking her class growing up, and then dancing for her professionally has shaped my view of the art of dance and my work ethic.  Her professionalism, creativity, and attention to detail is something that I find very inspiring and admirable.
