I started dancing at age 4 to be in ballet productions with one of my sisters. I am the youngest of five kids. Besides ballet, I love to ride horses.

Ballet is my favourite form of dance. I have been in Nutcracker 8 years playing Party Boy, Mother Ginger's son, Fritz, Mirlitons, Chinese, Nutcracker and Prince. I train at Art Ballet Academy under the direction of Mariya Kudyakova. Her husband, Alexander Kryvonis, trains me for shows and competitions.

I have competed in YAGP for three years (training for 4th season now), placing top 12 at Dallas Regional 2017 for Precompetitive Classical; top 6 at Dallas Regional Jr. Men Classical 2018; 3rd Place Pas de deux Houston Regional 2018 with Madeleine Gilbert and competed it at YAGP Finals, New York; and competed at YAGP Finals New York 2017 with my Mirlitons trio with Madeleine Gilbert and Gracie Watton. I placed Top 12 in Contemporary in Dallas 2019 and 1st Place Classical in Houston.

I competed as a soloist in the 2019 YAGP Finals. I have performed in 8 major ballets. I was awarded a full scholarship to Next Generation Ballet's Summer Intensive 2018 and 2019.

I homeschool and dream of earning a spot at Julliard for college. Right now, I am leaning towards auditioning for a company and dancing before attending college. I do want to dance professionally. I have a very supportive family and I was bullied for being limber and being a dancer when I was attending public school, just words, but words hurt and cannot be unheard!

Be true to yourself, and keep doing what you love, despite the unkind words of bullies.
