Carmen enjoys discovering new places and people. Her search for adventure and interest in human communication led her to spend time living in Spain, France, Colombia and Argentina. Interacting with people who have different perspectives and personalities inspire Carmen as a performer. In 2007, she embarked on theological studies in Buenos Aires. There she also began to train circus skills, such as trapeze, clowning and dance. She wrote a thesis that integrated anthropology, theology and movement metaphor and began to perform in variety shows around Buenos Aires.
In September of 2013 Carmen moved to Chicago to pursue her circus passions and participate in a full-time (40 hr/week) circus training program at Aloft Loft. Now she specializes in trapeze (solo and duo) and is actively pursuing clowning. This past summer she also became certified as a personal trainer.
