I'm a circus artist, dancer and performance artist. Currently based in the U.K. but work internationally. Skills: Voguing, Multiple Hula Hooping (up to 50), Rollerskate (dance and artistic fusion), Rollerskate and Hooping Fusion, Dancehall, Pole Dance.

I’m a queer multidisciplinary performance artist, dancer and circus artist. I began my performance career with The Majorettes, ran by Marawa the Amazing, from 2012-2016. During this time I toured around the world and gained a Guinness World Record.I was fortunate to begin my career through an untraditional route, without institutional training in circus nor an art degree as it added a unique flavour to my practice. 2014-2016 I also worked with Starship Hoopers (now retired), a synchronized LED hoop troupe by Chivaree Circus. We toured with Jon Hopkins during his album launch “Immunity” throughout the UK and Europe. In 2016, I began my solo performance career after being invited to perform with Machel Montano and Omi in the Caribbean. Spring 2016 I learned the art of cabaret with Marisa Carnesky and with Duckie in their “The Homosexualist Summer School Program”. A cabaret course for upcoming queer performers directed by Ursula Marteniz. In 2017, I became Roundhouse resident artist which enabled me to establish myself more as a soloist. Throughout the year I focused primarily on advancing my skills in voguing, dancehall, fusing circus style hooping with voguing, and rollerskating while hooping. In August and December 2017 I worked with La Soirée which since has shifted my career to the west end cabaret. I continue to work in cabaret around the UK and internationally, and currently am working on my first theatre production.
