Short Answers
Q: What are your skating goals, both short-term and long-term?
Short-Term: I would like to find a well matched committed partner who has the same work ethic, dedication, goals as I do.

Long-Term:I would like to represent a country nationally and internationally, and goes as far as the team is able.
Q: What qualities do you possess that would make you a good partner?
* I’m respectful, committed and willing to work as hard as needed in order to succeed. I’m always looking to improve myself as a competitor and enjoy new challenges. I have been told I’m easy to lift, and a quick learner. I also get along well with others, and have a good sense of humor.

*I have extensive training in many forms of dance including: Classical Ballet (in both the Vaganova and Cecchetti methods), Pointe, Character, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Ariel/Cirque, and Ballroom (in both American and International styles).

*I have quite a bit of partner experience, can spin in both directions, and am comfortable with lifts.
Extra comments:
* I have been very fortunate, the last 8 years, to be able to train with amazing coaches at the U.S Olympic Training Site in Colorado Springs, which have included: Christopher Dean, Ben Agosto, Richard Griffin, Trina Pratt, Christopher Obzansky, and Larry Ibarra.

*Last year I relocated to Florida to join the International Skating Academy, to train with Marina Zoueva and her team of coaches who specialize in developing ice dance teams.

*I’m open to competing for another country.

*I speak English, Spanish, and a small amount of French, and a small amount of Russian.
