My goal as a performer, educator, and arts administrator is to rise be above the material universe into a transcendent reality. My work manifests itself mostly in the quest to collect esoteric skills from outside cultures and to integrate them into new contexts. From studying foot juggling in China to learning Bulgarian folk singing in order to make a film about being a Bulgarian pop-folk star, most of what I do is about synthesizing the arts of different cultures.
As an educator, I strive to teach awareness, self-esteem, artistry and discipline to youth through the medium of circus arts.
As an administrator, I aspire to provide space, time, and guidance to individual artists and groups of artist to develop interdisciplinary work in collaboration.
