The dance instructor, fitness model and competitor, writer
I was born in 1975, in the small town of Kamloops, BC Canada. In 1983 I
made the move by camper trailer to the beautiful city of Victoria, BC.
My interests growing up included running, art (drawing), theater, and
In Oct, 1994 at the age of 19 I began my career as an exotic dancer.
Seeing the women on stage doing the most amazing moves on the poles
inspired me to want to learn. I asked the staff where were the Exotic
Dance School was located, to learn pole work. Their reply to me was
"There is no school, you just learn while you are on stage." I couldn't
believe there wasn't a place to go, and learn how to do pole work, walk,
dance, and crawl; do everything that makes someone a great exotic
dancer. Just two months after I learned my first move, "The Fire Man", I
purchased a brass pole from a metal store, and started teaching. The
date was Dec, 1994. While the rest of the world was going about their
business, I opened the world's first Exotic Dance School and produced
the instructional DVD: Pole Work, volume 1. The first of its kind,
making me a pioneer of what's now America's latest fitness craze, pole
dancing for fitness!
I have appeared on the cover of Las Vegas Life, Muscle Magazine
International, Body of Science, Canadian Health & Fitness, Body Talk and
in Muscle & Fitness, Oxygen, Flex, American Curves, Planet Muscle,
Ironman, Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness, Ms. Fitness, Las Vegas Weekly
and many others including Playboy's special editions 4 times, and
Playboy's Best of Canadian Girls calendar.
In March, 1996 when I retired from dancing, I began studying acting for
film and television at the Screen Actors Studio with David Simmonds. My
passion for performing soon lead to work on The X-Files, Millennium, and
in movies such as Profile For Murder, My Fathers Angel, Nationals
Lampoons Strip Poker, and the lead in both Dakota Bound and Cries of
In March, 2005 while at the Arnold Classic in Columbus, Ohio I met my
