My Story

Grey wants to live in a world filled with an appreciation of black culture, combat boots that double as dance shoes, and the ability to fall asleep outside of the hours of 3-6 am.

As a renaissance man, Grey strings together a variety of unique life and professional experiences that informs the work he does. With dance classes and lectures over the world, a blog with world wide readership and an ability to bring hard topics back down to earth, Grey is always working towards interesting new ideas. 

Grey’s group classes and lectures have been super informative and awesome. Grey obviously spends a lot of time doing research and planning his lessons. I always come out feeling like some kinda magic just got performed. How’d he do that? Always learn some really awesome stuff from him..”

Hard Reflections

Hard Reflections

As I settle into this new strange part of life I can’t help but look back on the past year. I’m a few days past the one year mark of coming out as trans and it felt like as soon as that happened my world collapsed. My therapist and I are calling this a transitional...
