What brought you to Bumbershoot Aerial Arts?
I've always been fascinated watching aerial arts and have always wanted to try it. It wasn't until we went to Cirque Du Soleil Michael Jackson. Once I saw it up close and live, it was my mission to find somewhere to learn this amazing craft. That's how I found bumbershoot!
What is your favorite apparatus to work on?
What is your favorite thing about Bumbershoot?
There are too many! Bumbershoot, the friends I've made, things I've learned, coaches, showcase, everything!
What kinds of things do you do when you aren’t hanging in the air?
I work for an IT staffing firm, love to plant flowers, have Pintrest parties and workout.
What is your favorite dessert?
Bunny Tracks ice cream
When you are having a tough day in class, what do you tell yourself?
I remind myself that some of my favorite tricks once seemed difficult and impossible. It takes patience and practice, you'll get it!
What is your favorite trick? Least favorite?
Double barrel roll is my favorite! Smush throughs not so much.
If you could run away to a desert island with one person from Bumbershoot who would it be?
Can I take all of you? It would be one heck of an island!
Do you have a favorite memory from class or performing?
There are many. I'll never forget the first time I walked into Bumbershoot, the excitement of seeing the studio for the first time and the potential of what I would learn. Learning my first drop. Getting to perform with my friends. The endless encouragement and comradery that comes from here. The list could go on!
