I was born in Schaumburg, Illinois, and moved to North Carolina in 2011.
I earned a BFA in Dance (May 2010) and an MS in News-Editorial Journalism (July 2011) from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Since late 2007, I have been a freelance dance writer and dance critic, and I have an incredible passion for preserving and promoting the fine arts.
I currently work as a Team Lead in the Coffee and Tea Dept. at Southern Season.
