BIO 2005:

Since my term as DOTY, I have attended Utah Valley State College and taught at The Dance Club in Utah. Shortly after, I began touring with LA Dance Magic as an assistant. I then moved to Dallas, where I taught at some local studios during the week, and toured on the weekends. In the summer of 2002, I had the opportunity to travel to Seoul, Korea, teach class at Poz Dance Theatre, and perform in a show with their company in Seoul. Last summer, I started my own company, SoulEscape. We performed two shows here in Dallas, which proudly received rave reviews. I currently am in my fifth year teaching full time for LADM, and working on the second of hopefully many shows with SoulEscape. I am proud to have been a DOTY with such a great organization, and one that I grew up in. That was truly one of the most memorable years of my life. It has obviously prepared me for the job I have today . . . Teaching on convention, and I will never forget how the whole staff treated my sister Tawney and myself
