I am a director of an internationally touring dance company, We dance on the sides of buildings, you know, vertical performance. I also work with environmental organizations like and their agents of change. I believe a home is meant to be shared. So I share my homes, my families' homes and I share other people's homes when I travel. It's like sharing stories but without the fire.
