About me

I'm a writer, producer and on-camera host who explores the world through my greatest passion: dance.

In the first two seasons of my web series Follow My Lead, I take viewers on a personal journey of immersion in the iconic dance styles of Havana and Buenos Aires. In most recent documentary project, To the Heart of Dance in Cuba, I explore folkloric dance as integral to Cuban culture, spirituality and family life.

I believe that everyone deserves to find the challenge that feeds their soul. For me, traveling the world to dance – to learn from the best dancers in the world – is the challenge that feeds my soul. It’s what makes me feel the most alive.

Even if you’re not a dancer or a traveler, I’m certain that there is something you love that feeds YOUR soul and makes YOU come alive. I hope my experiences can inspire you to devote yourself to pursuing those challenges!

  • This app sounds really interesting! I think sometimes the appeal of solo travel for me is NOT having to plan with other people haha :) This app sounds like it could really reduce the group-travel stress!
