I started dancing when I was three years old at That’s Dancing in Lake Worth, Florida. I have always imagined dance would become my life at such a young age. I have been dancing for 15+ years. I have trained in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Acro, Hip Hop, African, Latin, Musical Theatre, Contemporary, and Lyrical. I act and have done many musicals as a child. I have also done modeling and have been in two commercials, as well as two short films via my IMDb.
My family has always been supportive of what now has become my career. Every day, my mom would take my sister and I to our studio for classes. I train six days a week.
I hope to inspire young dancers of color. My hopes are that they never feel any less of who they are and can become whatever they aspire to be. It doesn’t matter where you come from; what matters is where you see yourself going. Take my life as an example, I am making my dream come true.

“Without dance there is no me”. I always knew dance would be an integral part
of my life from a young age. Attending
dance classes and competitions where males are the minority never deterred me
from my goal and aspirations. It inspired me to train and compete harder.
Thankfully, my family has always been supportive of me and my dance career.
My hope is I am able to inspire all young people, especially
male dancers of color to realize they can become whatever they aspire to be and
never feel inferior to others. Remember,
it does not matter where you come from; it’s where you see yourself going.
