I am a nationally awarded, versatile cirque-style aerialist, pushing the boundaries of what the human body can do and combining it with the strength, grace, and artistry to create one-of-a-kind experiences.
After my career as a level 10 gymnast, I picked up aerial arts and dance as a full-time passion in 2014, and have performed professionally ever since. I have graced the stage for theatrical productions such as Tarzan, Vagina Monologues, and Jesus Christ Superstar and has been highlighted at events like TEDxBoise, Discovery Center of Idaho’s Annual Gala, Konnexion Music Festival, and Magic Valley Folk Festival. All performances are tailored to each event.

Additional Booking Notes
I can rig to most indoor events, but a ceiling height of at least 14' and prior authorization of the building owner is required before booking. Ceiling heights higher than 20' preferred for aerial silk. If rigging beyond my expertise is required, the professional fee will be added into my quote.
Outdoor events require at least one month before booking to secure the rental of an outdoor rigging system.
A set of 20 minutes sitting in beautiful poses for background entertainment at events. Can be done to the ambient music around. Can pour wine/other drinks from apparatus during this set if wanted. Must have a 20 minute break between each of these sets.
A 5 minute fully prepared and rehearsed performance set to specific music. More dynamic than an ambient performance. Meant to capture your guests attention and make them "oooh" and "awwee."
