About Me

New York is my creative and professional base, where I'm currently working at a performing arts center in Brooklyn, teaching dance and helping manage the center. I have a great passion for people, live arts, and connecting with inspired souls all over the world. I've traveled extensively as a dancer and journalist, from Africa to India, and across the U.S. A dreamer and builder, I love producing creative dance projects that connects people to their higher purpose and builds community. Friendly and drug-free, I like to celebrate the simple things in life and seek harmony in all relationships.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm couch surfing primarily to introduce myself to Brooklyn where I plan to move to full-time as I get started in my new job at a performing arts center in Bed-Stuy.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite music is definitely live percussion and world music. Movies and books, I prefer romantic comedies and kung fu flicks. Books wise, I love historical non-fiction on both American and world history.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Produced an original dance concert in North India.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach dance but also professional writing. I'd love to learn how to ride a bike. I'd love to share visions and help connect people to key resources they need to take the next steps.
