After my retirement from synchronized swimming, I was offered a contract to work for Cirque du Soleil on a collaboration project they had with Lipton UK. The concept for their commercial was un underwater shoot filled with special effects and choreographed scenes. Having spent half my life in the water it was a perfect fit. I, along with 6 other artists, trained at the Cirque du Soleil headquarters for a few weeks before heading off to Bucharest, Romania to shoot for two weeks. It was an immense production with elaborate costumes and special effects including ink release costumes and pressurized air bubbles. A truly unique and unforgettable experience working with not only the Cirque du Soleil team, but also T.O by Lipton and Rouge Films.
