I have been doing aerial silks for 3 years now, and I have loved it ever since the day I started.
My mom is the real reason that I started doing silks, she started about a year before me, and eventually convinced me to go with her one day. She and Jennifer Wilkins are the reason that I still push myself, I really want to be as good as them one day.
Performing on silks has been a way to focus on what I want, it helps me perfect the gracefulness that I miss when I am simply learning new moves.
Cirque is just a good way to be free in your own skin. Our studio (Cirque Asylum) and everyone in it is very accepting, no matter how eccentric you may be.
When I am not at the studio, I enjoy taking photos and boating.
