When I was four years old my Mother enrolled me in ballet. At first, I was shy and reserved but eventually with hard work and dedication I developed my own form. By age twenty four, I completed the Royal Academy of Dance examinations. This opened up a compulsion for achievement. Until I found glass at age eighteen, ballet was my number one artistry and now I am thirteen years into my glass blowing career. This year I was elected to be on the receiving end of a scholarship at The Corning Museum of Glass. A place were I can explore the highly technical side of hot glassworking under the instruction of one of the world's best William Gudenrath.
