I see art always being political. I respond to what happens in the society. I respond when there is inequality. I respond when I feel the need for someone to say something.  I make statements with my art. My practice is a conversation in between with being in the world of play, creativity, collaboration, gentleness and making loud political statements, taking a stand. Being stern and soft. Being open and determined. Being sensitive and standing your ground.

I graduated as a dancer & choreographer (BA, Hons) from Falmouth University, UK in 2018. I now work as a freelance dance artist in Tampere, Finland. I work with film and live performance. I also work with community dance for Pirkanmaa Dance Center: I hold dance for Parkinson's classes and work especially with older people. 

Currently I am doing my Master's in Choreography in Fontys/Codarts in the Netherlands.
