I want to continue the work of empathetic understanding.

I want to be inclusive.

I care about the personal because it is always relational.

I want to know about my experience in relationship to yours. 

I want you to hear me and I want to listen to you. 

 

I aim to make myself and others feel comforted through the act of performing and creating. I hope to open up a space for questions and conversations around identity, standards, systems, conformity, community, and the performing/dancing/living body.
