854 W. 181st. St. 5J
New York, NY, 10033,

I'm a filmmaker who loves to dance - any and all kinds including CI, salsa, reggae, rumba, swing. CI is the most profound of all of them - it unlocks my subconscious and I find it often very cathartic. I used CI in a film lately that will be distributed throughout NYC. It's called, "Older and Wiser: Many Faces of HIV." I did a workshop that improvised movement around various themes relating to aging and HIV and used some of the footage with interviews. I have my own small production company and have been doing this for several years so you can call on me if you need to create a dance video for inspiration, fund-raising, documentation or have a dance/film idea you'd like to collaborate on.
