"Static Drift" originated as a 10 minute stage piece, which I later developed into "Static Drift Abridged", the short dance film.

Every year at Kenyon, the dance department chooses two pieces to showcase at the regional ACDA (American College Dance Association) conference. For the March conference of 2016, Kenyon selected "Static Drift" along with a re-staged version of Bebe Miller's "Prey".

Static Drift had many people collaborating to create the final product. Professor Tatjana Longerot was the costume designer, Aidan Gross the composer, and Meg Thornbury the lighting designer. The piece was danced by Jennifer Seely, Marc Ferraro, and Timmy Broderick. The project would never have developed to completion without the support of Kenyon's Dance, Drama, and Film department.

After Static Drift Abridged won the 2nd place CalArts Emerging Artists award, Kenyon College wrote an article that features some of the process behind the piece and my approach choreography.

"Please Don't Feed the Animals" was my first choreographed piece to be shown in one of Kenyon's bi-annual dance concerts. Featuring a cast of twelve dancers, the piece ran around 10 minutes long.

Originally intended to explore themes of self-discovery, "Please Don't Feed the Animals" took on a more animalistic tone by the end of rehearsals, hence the title.

Too Late, No Apologies was a sneak peak into the world of performance. The four dancers presented their best sides while imperfection and anxiety leaked in and took over their movements.
