Influences & Inspiration
I have taken classes with several burlesque legends, including Delilah Jones and Judith Stein. I am also a graduate of the Coney Island Sideshow School (NYC) and the DAMU puppetry school (Prague), as well as having a BA in performance studies and theatrical design. As a professional artist, I embrace a philosophy of constantly learning and studying other performers to continually improve my own art.
I will generally bring any equipment I will need except for a sound system.
