Where did you train?

I grew up dancing at the Maria Priadka School of Dance, but as my focus shifted to a career in dance, I moved to Harlem School of the Arts, where I trained under the guidance of Aubrey Lynch and Leyland Simmons.

What inspires you?

I’m inspired by art from different mediums, such as film, sculptures, and literature. I love the challenge of transferring ideas from one medium into another. In short, all artists inspire me!

Describe yourself in three words.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I played baseball on an all-boys team for five years!

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?
