My dancing emphasizes the movement that arises from my particular physicality and from my curiosity about line, form, and dance craft. I am passionate about virtuosity, strength, simplicity, and beauty. I am drawn to the moments when my personal aesthetics collide with societal and cultural norms.

I dance in pieces that explicitly question what we think we know about disability, dance, and the body. I also perform in pieces that address disability only by dint of my presence. I move in my wheelchair, without assistive technologies on the floor, and with my crutches and wheelchair together. Each of these modalities provides a new movement language, a new technique, and a distinct path to virtuosity. But they are each also a pure embodiment—a metamorphosis into a body with its own integrity and unique capacity for dance.
