I Heart Japan
Not too long ago I spent some time in Japan and fell in love with the culture, art, and land. I kept an illustrated travel journal and I also published travel guides seeking art and inspiration in Kyoto and Tokyo.
Dance has always been a huge part of my life. I am forever grateful that dance allows me to travel, meet new friends, and spread the joy of dance movement from large festival stages to performance supper clubs, from private weddings to public concerts and music videos. I have traveled the world as a dancer with Sabaya Bellydance Corporation, Govinda, and Thievery Corporation.
Also, I might have been Cleopatra in another life.
