There is always a new discovery to be made, so there is always motivation to dance.
Dance occupies a very prominent place in my soul, a guttural, powerful, invincible place that defines who I am as both an artist and a member of society.
Choreographic inspiration comes most prominently from happenings that posses meaning to me, like experiences or a memories that leave a deep-seated affect on me. Any piece of music that I really connect with is usually something that I try to choreograph to at some point.
I am also inspired by the people around me and by the fact that dance is an ancient and perpetually evolving art form that I can continue to explore for life.
