About Me


To add value to the world.


I am passionate about dance, especially Latin social dancing - salsa, bachata, and Argentine tango. I've been dancing for several years now. I don't compete but have performed in Los Angeles, San Diego, Palm Springs, Amsterdam and Ireland.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In 2009, I visited Amsterdam and Dublin to perform salsa on stage. I had the opportunity to perform at the Irish salsa congress. It was an amazing experience. I met so many wonderful people during that holiday. I've been inspired to travel more since then.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to latin dance. I've been told by many dance partners that I'm a great lead and very patient. :)
