I grew up in Chicago but after graduating with a degree in Engineering (Technology Management) and Economics (International Politics and Policy) decided to relocate to Cincinnati. I love dancing, helping others ,and building things - such as guitars and sculptures. I have always been fascinated with how Dance can be a lens through which we can learn about other people's cultures. This led me to study abroad and learn various dance styles in the Middle East and how their unique culture impacted their dances. I have danced with many different studios including the Chicago Multicultural Dance Center, Joffrey Ballet, and the Cincinnati Ballet. While my primary expertise is in ballet. I have also danced Contemporary, Modern, Latin, (West) African, and local Israeili, Palestinian, and Egyptian dances.
