Bio

I'm Cameo, a choreographer living and working in Seattle. I dance, I teach, and I'm an avid neuroscience lover and an aspiring video editor.

As a choreographer, I create physical systems that produce specific responses from the body. Whether it's through architecture, creative limitations, or a commitment to a single movement idea, I seek to elicit emotional and physical reactions through adjustments of the body and/or the environment. With each new choreographic work, I am committed to pursuing a mental and physical rigor in order to challenge my own creative capacity and to push my curiosity to new places.

From 2010-2014, I attended Skidmore College where I graduated with majors in Dance and Neuroscience. I moved to Seattle in 2015 where I've had the privilege of sharing my work at venues like On the Boards, Velocity Dance Center, Yaw Theater, The Pocket Theater, The National Museum of Dance, Electric Lodge, and more. I've also had the great opportunity to perform for choreographers Alice Gosti, Kate Wallich, Hayley Shannon, Dylan Ward, Nathan Blackwell, and Coleman Pester. As a selected artist for Ellenore Scott's The Breaking Glass Project, I received additional choreographic and administrative mentorships from Sidra Bell and Nia-Amina Minor. 

I am a recipient of the Margaret Paulding Award for Outstanding Performance and Choreography and SeattleDances' 2017 DanceCrush Award. I'm also a 2018-2019 James Ray resident supported by the Seattle International Dance Festival.
