As a young adult I worked extensively in the entertainment industry as a professionally dancer, model and performer. My performance resume includes dozens of music videos, commercial, television shows, films, etc.
While working in Hollywood, I was also studying Cultural Anthropology at Santa Monica College and began traveling internationally. I have a deep respect for culture and have spent time visiting and living in such places as India, Cambodia, Spain, Jamaica, Thailand, Cuba, Bolivia, Peru, Costa Rica, Vietnam, Indonesia, Argentina, Belize, Mexico, France, Italy, Spain, Brazil and Greece. From these travels I have gained great insight into the interdependence of all peoples and our inherent connection.
With all of my experience I find great satisfaction and inspiration in guiding students toward connecting with their most authentic and radiant selves!
I appreciate your consideration.
