A French-American citizen of Chinese and Italian heritage, a passionate teaching artist, choreographer, and film editor. Used to teach movement and theatre at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York before relocating to Lisbon a few months ago. His movement background is centered around devised dance theatre rooted in Jacque Lecoq, Rudolph Laban, and Moshe Feldenkrais's approach to embodied research and play. Also teaches a Russian martial art called Systema.

He would like to gather a community interested in storytelling in various languages using dance, theatre, and film. Some of his inspirations for this endeavor include Theatre du Soleil, Theatre de Complicite, Frantic Assembly, Tantztheatre, and Batsheva.

He is looking to start a meetup group in the prospect of hosting a movement lab with classes involving physical theatre, dance, mime, and improv as well as adapting and devising his own plays.
