I attended Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa where I majored in acting and technical theater. I started teaching ballroom dance in 1990 for T.C Dance Club, International and quickly became the top-ranking ballroom dance instructor/choreographer in the state of Iowa. I am a gold-level ballroom dancer who has competed Pro/Am throughout the United States and has received training from some of the top competitors ballroom dancing has to offer. Since then I have choreographed dances for both Pro/Am and amateur ballroom competitions, college show choirs and musical theater. A martial artist since age 10 (1979), I have studied Tae Kwon Do, Shorin Ryu Karate, Aikido and Aikijujitsu as well as fencing (both European and Japanese), kickboxing and Muy Thai. I have been fight choreographer for both stage and screen creating fights for such productions as; Oklahoma (Hale Theater), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Shakespeare Theater), Fight Club ( Feast of Fools Theater), Words Wit and Wisdom (Herberger Stages Actor Training Program), Psycho Manor (Dream Film Productions) and The Case Effect (Lara Houston Productions). I have preformed as a stunt fighter in such films as; Vampire Slayers, The Last Gunfighter, Psycho Manor and Queens of Country.
