Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
I am looking to find a hardworking, disciplined partner with a positive outlook who I can build a wonderful ice dance relationship with and who has the same desire to compete at national and international level.

I moved to Michigan last year to train at Detroit Skating Club. My goal is to improve my skills by training along other dancers, and high level teams, in a structured academy-like program. I hope to find a partner who is interested in skating in this kind of environment.

In the short term, I am focusing on mastering the next level of pattern dances and on further improving my partnering skills.

I have recently started working with Daniel Eaton (current partner with Alexandra Aldridge), retired pair skater and ice dancer Matt Blackmer and also Alper Ucar (Team Turkey) who retired from competition after 2018 World Championships.

I am also working hard to improve the quality of my edges, turns and twizzles.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
Both as a skater and as a high school student, I am very self-disciplined, focused, and have a strong work ethic, but I am still fun and positive. I am able to listen to directions/corrections and strive to immediately apply them to my actions. I am willing to try new things! I have lots of friends, enjoy meeting new people and get along easily.

Additionally, I am very physically flexible, an advantage that I continue to further develop. I love to perform and I can easily get into character.
