about me

I am a dancer and a philosopher. Both dimensions of my work inform one another and share common principles.
Working in dance and philosophy has enriched my life greatly, and I feel very fortunate to have been able to engage in both of these pursuits.

"This is the most important teaching: not two, and not one. Our body and mind are not two and not one. . . . Our body and mind are both two and one."
Shunryu Suzuki

"The autonomous person is not just a being that wills, desires, thinks, reasons and chooses... [the autonomous person] is also embodied, a being in time and space, mortal, ‘natural’."
Nicole Speletic

aims and aspirations

I would like to keep moving, living in my body, aware and appreciative.
I would like to bring this awareness, enjoyment and understanding of the self-through-body to more people.
I would like to do more collaborating with artists and thinkers working to make art that addresses the needs of society.
In particular I would like to be involved in art that fosters awareness of ourselves as physical beings,
integrally part of an organic world of matter and energy - and awareness of ourselves as meaningful beings, to whom things matter and who need to matter.
