Adventurous. Creative. Open.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I can eat about nine pounds of crawfish in one sitting (including the potatoes and the corn that comes with the batch).

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

It means THE WORLD to be a part of this program and attend this university. From a student’s perspective, USC Kaufman’s program is not only innovative, it is also one of the most diverse dance programs out there. The support shown by the faculty, the counselors, and the students is unmatched. I’m always eager to learn and grow in an environment like the one here at USC Kaufman!
