I was born with osteogenesis imperfecta (aka "Brittle Bones Disease"). I spent almost half my life in a wheel chair, recovering from bone fractures. I have broken my spine 5 times, my hips 3 times and my legs more than 100 times. I have a mild form of the condition.

Despite these challenges, I have transitioned from a full-time wheelchair user to a professional dancer, and performing artist. I took up dancing because I couldn't afford regular physiotherapy. Dancing became a passion, then a career.

It is my goal to help empower others through engagement in artistic, martial and lifestyle practices that develop the mind, spirit and body; building a lifestyle the combines The performative works created are the outcomes of my process.

For as little as $1 per project, you can help me to create and share my art works with you and the rest of the world.

You're on this journey with me!


Your support means a lot! I have already faced many challenges to get where I am today, and I'm sure there are plenty more to come, but those challenges are easier to face knowing there is a large community who care about and support what I do.


I am determined to keep slugging away, but your contribution really helps to me to stay motivated and keep going when everything seems like it's all just too much!

Let's do this!


Your support helps me to syphon more of my time and resources into my creative practice. 


Let me share that with you first hand through an hour session (via an online stream) of one of my multidisciplinary creative processes, Alchemia Exteriores. Influenced by my research in Alchemy, this creative process uses a statement of intent to physicalise and manifest a work of art in your discipline, whether you're a mover, a musician, painter or writer!

Goals
6 of 15 patrons
When I reach 15 patrons, I'll begin to upload a new choreographic video each month.
