Hey everyone! I have really great news to share… I’ve been chosen as a La Roche-Posay Be Clear Ambassador! (La Roche-Posay provided a product sample for review purposes, and all opinions are clearly my own).
The timing for representing this amazing product couldn’t have been better, as I was just planning my summer adventures & wondered how I was going to travel, hike mountains, & bathe in volcanic waterfalls without creating any damage to my skin. Needless to say, I was so excited to have as part of my skincare arsenal LA ROCHE-POSAY ANTHELIOS 50 MINERAL ULTRA LIGHT SUNSCREEN FLUID .
Not only did it protect my skin, but it gave me the freedom to go carefree of any sunburn to my fair complexion…priceless!
Last week, I had the opportunity to attend my colleague and friend, Pioneer Winter’s, brilliant presentation of HOST – physical theatre performance. For me to attempt to describe in words would not do justice to such an intelligent work that truly takes you through an experience, a journey of emotions. Here is Pioneer’s description:
“HOST is an all-male physical theatre work that explores power, authority, control, isolation, and desire. Within these paths, the word ‘host’ emerges as both sexualized territory as well as a bodily struggle. ‘Host’ is layered in the queer community, where one word is weighted by both history and its digital presence – host of a dinner party, host of a game show, host to an orgy, host to a virus…
HOST by Pioneer Winter and Jared Phillip Sharon
Sound and composition: ABI-LI-TY”
Here are some of the photos captured that night with my dear friend and fellow choreographer/dancer, Ana Bolt, along side HOST creators and performer.

Would you believe that we managed to pull off this little production number for my Fort Lauderdale Strikers Cheerleaders team in just 2 weeks?!
It was such a fun way to wrap up our hugely successful season and celebrate the Halloween holiday. This special production featured our very own HOTSHOT-Strikers Mascot, performing with his “Dolls” as our “Puppet Master”.
It was a blast!
Choreography by: Maria Ines Serritella
Makeup by: Academy of Glam
Check out our Samba, choreographed by our FTLStrikers Cheerleaders Director Jeanne Wolk! And, in case you’re wondering which one is me, I’m still the only dancer with the short, black hair 😉

When I was contacted by Pierre Rivard of Up In Front, I jumped at the chance to work with him as part of a cool, little documentary on what it is like to be a dancer/choreographer for Fort Lauderdale’s only NASL pro soccer team, The Strikers!
Here, you get a sneak peak into the rehearsal, game-day preparation, fan zone, half-time performance, and post-performance photo-ops with our loyal fans.
I am so grateful for the opportunity to have worked for Up In Front and to share the experience with everyone. Enjoy!
