Hello! I'm a dance critic and freelance writer in Seattle, Washington. I also consult with researchers regarding use of human subjects (which isn't as creepy as it sounds).
My dance writing includes previews, reviews, artist interviews, and essays. I believe that dance should be accessible to everyone and I write to hopefully draw in all dance audiences, from people who have never seen Swan Lake to ballet fans who count fouettes.
You can find my work in The Seattle Times, The Stranger, City Arts Magazine, Encore Arts, Seattle Dances, and my own blog over on the next page. I occasionally write about feminist issues like reproductive health, parental leave, and motherhood.
Seattle is my home. I live here with my husband and tiny son; you can usually find us eating pizza somewhere in north Seattle, or riding bikes to a coffee shop or hanging out in our community orchard. I was born in Texas and have lived in Japan, Germany, and Poland. I studied ballet in Texas and New York, history at the University of Washington, and received my Master's degree in Eastern and Central European Studies from Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland.
