He recently started 100% OVER RACISM.

“When the pandemic hit, I watched a lot of my work as freelance choreographer vanish. An idea struck me as I made a protest sign combating racism in the wake of George Floyd’s murder. With an activist mindset and a passion for social change, 100% OVER RACISM. wants people to #wearyourtruth and have the hard conversations that will move us forward as we fight for racial equity & equality.”
