I’m a Brooklyn transplant via the Tulsa Artist Fellowship. Growing up in Florida, I spent most of my days skateboarding, creating art, and b-ball’n. I met my incredible wife, Judy Arenas, during my fellowship term (I immediately knew she was the one). The most important advice I can give: if you can, grow a beard. Favorite childhood movies: The NeverEnding Story and White Men Can’t Jump. Greatest TV show: Gumby.

I teach to connect with a collective consciousness and share my passion for creativity. I hope that others can experience the same fulfillment that art has brought to my life.

Physical Education & Wellness Arts

I was born in Fort de France, Martinique and was raised in Miami, FL by my mother. I absolutely love teaching kids. Teaching has been a passion of mine for the past 9years. I love to dance, sing, and have fun with my family. I am a wife to a beautiful man and a mother of 3 beautiful girls. I got into my first professional dance company at the age of 19 (Dallas Black Dance Theatre), I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to tour all of Europe while performing on the Independence Of The Seas with Royal Caribbean, and I was one of the top 20 dancers in the world on SYTYCD Season 7. My husband and I have a love for Pitbulls and I enjoy putting mustard on my pizza! I teach because it is my obligation to train up the next generation in physical and wellness awareness.
