ABOUT ME

I'm Wisty, a hapa queer-do and I love dance, music, and exploring the wonderful things this Earth has to offer in this current time-space reality. I don't really know what I'm doing but I do know that I'm here to have fun and enjoy being a human. I haven't always known this so I'm doing my best to make the best of each present moment so I can enjoy life and keep growing. While I am here as a human, I want to have fun and help others enjoy life and have fun! 

In the past, I have done many different things and enjoy being a "Wisty of all trades." Here are some things you might have seen me or known me for:

  • Dance/Performance - I started training at 7 years old and haven't stopped since! I have studied at New World School of the Arts College, Interlochen Arts Academy, and Dublin Dance Centre and Gymnastics. I started with ballet, but have experience in modern, jazz, contemporary, gymnastics, stilting, (contact) improvisation, hip hop, and burlesque. I LOVE collaborating with other artists, especially mixing dance and music. 

  • Music - I honestly can't remember a time when music wasn't a part of my life. I started when I was 4, still living in Japan, then studied under William VanSickle at The Conservatory of Piano from 7-18. I picked up the accordion when I went to college and now play with my bf in Accordion Sandwich. I also DJ for ((305)) Fitness and hope to make some more music in the future!

  • ((305)) Fitness - This underground RAVE WORKOUT is one of the best things the Universe has brought to my life. I am an INSTRUCTOR and ALSO a DJ here, as there is a LIVE DJ in every class! I have learned so much about fitness and honestly I could keep going on and on about how much I love ((305)). Come #makesweatsexy with me HERE!

  • Reiki - Reiki is an energy work modality which uses gentle touch (or hover) of the hands to balance one's Chakras and body energy flow. When I was 13ish I was attuned to Level 1 Usui Reiki by my father, Mark Andres. In college I dove more into Reiki and received my Level 2 and 3 attunements, with Lorraine Hendry Meyer as my mentor/teacher. 

  • Modeling - I really enjoy getting my picture taken and collaborate with photographers who are able to capture the essence of me in different ways. Some favs include Redaska and Travis Alex Photo. I also love life modeling (aka modeling for visual artists). Scott Ketcham has some really interesting paintings of me!
