Tell us a bit about you?
I am so very excited to be back performing in my hometown! I currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada but was raised in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. I moved to Las Vegas to pursue a career in the hospitality industry but fell in love with vintage Las Vegas and burlesque in particular along the way. I currently teach at Las Vegas Burlesque Studio and perform in Las Vegas. I also enjoy traveling the country to perform in festivals such as the Southwest Burlesque Festival, Hollywood Burlesque Festival, Kansas City Burlesque Festival and the New Orleans Burlesque Festival.
Tell us 3 things about burlesque that move you?
I love entertaining people. I love seeing others grow and gain confidence through burlesque. I love the diversity and acceptance of burlesque.
What would you like to see while you here?
I am excited to see old friends and family and also make new friends from all over.
