What to Expect
Performances can be adjusted to fit the venue and desired entertainment. I am able to do specific acts on a given apparatus, which are action packed performances, usually 4-6 minutes long that include more daring stunts and difficult skills. This is ideal as a focal point of entertainment. I am also able to do more ambient performance in which I am more of a piece in the decor of your vision. Ambient performance can last up to an hour with given breaks, and will consist of feats of flexibility, grace, and flow. Other specific performance services such as champagne pouring, are of course possible upon request.
For the past year I have performed all over the world with Aida, in a variety of shows and acts. I have performed solo and in groups, aerial and acrobatics, and have even played the part of a squirrel. I enjoy creating my own material and experimenting with new apparatuses. I currently have acts on Aerial Fabric, Multicorde, Straps, Sling, Hoop and Duo acrobatics.
Growing up on a farm in eastern Washington, I dreamt of one day joining the circus. After a lifetime of acrobatics and competing for my university's tumbling team, I found myself immersed in the circus community of Seattle; discovering my love for flying trapeze and aerial arts. I later moved to Europe as part of a traditional circus to pursue my passion for performance. I have now been performing for four years and am constantly inspired; combining art, creativity, and athleticism into something unique and incredible.

In addition to my work in circus:
I am a classically trained cellist and have been playing for 16 years.
I am a Certified Soma Neuromuscular Integration Practitioner and LMP with my own practice in Seattle. This work focuses on manual therapy for connective tissue and exercises to alleviate pain, improve posture and hasten recovery.
I have my Bachelor's in international business and Spanish and am the business manager for Rose City Circus-a collaboration of performers based in the Pacific Northwest. (link hidden)
Aerial rigging is needed for performance. I provide my own equipment but require a solid point from which to rig. This point being a suitable beam, stage point, etc.
