"My mother taught me how to dance and I just took off from that point watching Michael Jackson and countless dance videos studying dance and learning from the TV screen basically. Once graduated I took my talents more seriously and started training more, my 1st big opportunity was when I traveled to Chicago to audition for the Wade Robson Project, I was blessed to make it on the show and visited Los Angeles California where I competed against hundreds to make it to the top 30 on the MTV aired show, from there I moved to L.A. and danced with numerous choreographers, took classes and just really trained to upgrade and enhance my dance craft. I've worked and danced with Omarion, Marques Houston, Tank, Nelly and Ali of the st.lunatics, 3lw, Black dance USA, black expo, VP fair of st.Louis, Cuzzo records and Many More! My style of dance is Hip Hop but I Dont really label my craft after a specific style because I incorporate all genres of dance into my choreography and just DANCE!"
