I have been a competitive B-boy (a person who breakdances) since 2007, and I am the co-artistic director for the artist collective Stylin' Out Network (www.stylinoutnetwork.com).
I have taught, performed, and competed worldwide, including but not limited to South Korea, Taiwan, Australia, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, and the United States. I have taught workshops at various American universities, including Princeton University and the University of Chicago. I have organized several internationally attended dance events and won several prestigious breaking competitions with my group and as a solo performer.
As a dancer, I focus on improvisational
artistry and strive to integrate various styles into my craft. I often use
humor (and sometimes absurdity) to subvert some of the expectations regarding
breaking that exist inside and outside of the breaking community. In general,
breaking can have a much broader scope of expression than what it is traditionally
given credit for; I, therefore, try to
display the more untraditional expressive capabilities of breaking in my movements and when I choreograph.
