Currently training to become an Intimacy Choreographer in addition to my Fight Choreography work.


I've been performing in the Twin Cities since 2001, ranging from musicals to Shakespeare to experimental theatre to dance performances to pure fight shows. I continually train in Stage Combat, which I perform, Choreograph, teach, and have just begun my own weapon rental and maintenace business, Northern Edge Armory. I have a specific interest in movement-based theatre, especially with violence: need a choreographer? a few weapons for your soldiers? a training program for your students? send me an email, I can help.
