Originally a musician and singer then later on a dancer, I have had the immense pleasure and honor of collaborating with such entities as Opera San Jose and The Vagabond Opera, with my dance teachers: Rachel Brice's Datura Project and Zoe Jake's Bhoomi Project and band Beats Antique, as well as with many friends, fellow artists, and students long the way.
