I first began Salsa dancing in high school 10 years ago. It wasn’t until college where I began taking formal classes with Stephanie Palmeri and my skills and technique began forming. Through the training with Stephanie, I was able to eventually get to a level to become a teaching partner with her and, together, we joined various dance troupes in the Bay Area, as well as co-directing one of our own.
In 2005, I joined Pretty Boys & Girls Dance Productions under the direction of Ricardo Sanchez and Michelle Castro. During my years in PB&G, I was able to compete in various high-profile competitions and travel around the world with the team performing and teaching the SF Bay Area salsa style.
