Daisy was born in Oakland, California, and studied dance in Berkeley, San Francisco, London, and Geneva, where she was a member of the Ballet Junior. 

In 2007 she arrived in Belgium to work with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, whom she now frequently represents as a rehearsal director, notably for the duo Faun. 

Based in Brussels since 2008, she has been fortunate to create work in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the U.S. with directors such as Alain Platel (les ballets c de la b), Constanza Macras (Dorky Park), Serge Aimé Coulibaly (Faso Danse Théâtre), Quan Bui Ngoc, Lisi Estarás, Iris Bouche, and Erika Tsimbrovsky. 

She is a choreographer and movement coach for theater and opera, working most frequently with directors Gaia Saitta and Cecilia Ligorio, and is a founding member of the theater company IfHuman. She’s been a guest artist with, among others, the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève and the Norwegian National Ballet, a dancer for the band Tune-Yards, and a member of the Göteborgs Operans Danskompani.
