He found his life’s calling at a young age and in the process of following his path, has evolved a transformative movement practice that has touched the lives of thousands.

“Whether running in circles in the schoolyard or circling partners at Catholic youth dances in the Bronx; these were a few of the places I experienced freedom and aliveness. Years performing provided a deep understanding of how to clearly occupy space. Time spent as a storyteller informed me how to speak with presence. Years spent working with young children informed me about patience. Later in my dance career I met Gabrielle Roth and I knew then that I no longer wanted to dance for people, but rather with them. This is what I offer. Freedom. Aliveness. Presence.”
