I create with the intention that Laughter and Movement can spark life back into a day, month, or even a year. The goal of my work is to provide a release to not only the people viewing it, but the people performing it as well. I draw my movement and comedy inspiration from researching the following— points of initiation, spiraling out of control, and the motion is forward.
A firm believer in the phrase, laughter is the best medicine.
