I am a lifelong student of many subjects. My approach to teaching is one of patience and enthusiasm. I do my best to understand the student's learning style and teach accordingly.
I have been a professional actor, model, and singer for 10 years. I specialize in on-camera acting for TV commercials, industrial video, and host. Most of the modeling I've done is commercial print and live promotional modeling. I've taught acting to kids ages 6-17 for the past year, including on-camera auditioning, stage directions, script analysis, and business skills (headshot/resume, finding an agent, industry terms, etc.).
My singing experience includes pop, musical theatre, and jazz. I've coached students who believed they were hopeless, and they were pleased to discover their gifts and see growth!
I am a certified yoga instructor (RYT-200) and have taught for 3 years, both group classes and privately.

I have taught yoga privately, as well as in a group setting. Studios include Footprints Yoga (Denver), Actasana Acting Studio & Theatre (Denver), Crossfit Lapeer (Michigan), Elga Credit Union (Michigan), and Fun 2B Fit Zumba Studio (Michigan).
Over 30 spots on-camera in TV Commercials, Industrial Video, and Hosting, as well as Voice-Over, Print Modeling, and Promotional Modeling.
Lead singer in various pop/rock bands and jazz combos, performing in local venues in Lansing, MI and the Denver Metro Area.
This is the certification required to teach yoga professionally in Colorado. I earned my certification at Samadhi Center for Yoga in Denver. The focus was on Hatha and Vinyasa Flow, with broad studies including anatomy, yoga philosophy, ayurveda, and sanskrit.
Yoga Alliance is the largest nonprofit association representing the yoga community. Our mission is to spread the power of yoga one person at a time.
We believe that the individual experience of yoga is of paramount importance, and are committed to supporting the passage of yoga from trainer to teacher, teacher to student, and student to aspiring yogi. Our role as the national support organization for the yoga community is to ensure that the practice of yoga will keep growing, so that more people will connect with yoga and be transformed. As an organization we keep several core values at heart: service, excellence, transparency, learning and community.
