This life we's strange, painful at times, but oh so beautiful.

I am a fusion dance artist and teacher, a fire dancer, and a visual artist. I draw inspiration from nature, music, and the amazing people that come into my life. I am also a conservationist who makes jewelry and found object multimedia craft type art in my spare time (when I'm not reading, writing, or lighting things on fire and dancing around with them). I love to dance barefoot on the beach, watch the stars move inexorably across the heavens, and to laugh with the people that I love. I am currently based in Greenville SC, working with Discordia Arts to provide unique and exciting entertainment to the Upstate.

  2. Diverse rental auto affiliations may claim to be the best relationship by significance of their unassuming rates and dumbfounding refunds yet they slump pitiably on giving quality rental auto affiliations. Rent a Car Islamabad Thusly it is basic while analyzing for the broad rental auto associations one needs to look past the attracting lines of refunds and unassuming auto rental rates.
