Challenging pop culture and social medias' inaccurate, dismissive, and reductive depiction of what it means to have obsessive compulsive disorder
Artist and commercial and editorial photographer.

To address my own false beliefs about ageism, feminity, and insecurities about my own failures as a child performer. To gain confidence and self-respect. To learn that life isn't about "winning." To challenge me, especially in regard to my feelings of inadequacy and social anxiety. To get back to something I love doing- performing. To own who I am. To break down false assumptions I had regarding pageantry and see my own potential to misjudge. To be humble. To be appreciative. To meet new people. To become a better person and to hopefully use my strengths to help others.
Former pre professional ballet dancer and child performer dancing in over 124 performance of Balanchine's the Nutcracker at Lincoln Center.
