1. Who or what inspired you to become a performer? Definitely Judy Garland. (yes, I did grow up basically as a gay man.) I loved watching her movies when I was a little girl, and I always wanted to sing just like her.

2. What is the highest and lowest note you can sing? The highest belt note would be an A flat, and soprano is probably a high E. Lowest note, comfortably…I’d say an F below middle C.

3. Who is the one person that you haven’t worked with that you would like to? I would LOVE to work with Bette Midler. I absolutely think she is brilliant, and has really made her own career…one that I extremely admire.

4. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Run your career as a marathon…not a sprint.

5. If you couldn’t be doing what you are doing now, what career would you choose? I would probably be a History teacher. I DO enjoy teaching, and I am a huge history buff.

6. Favorite place to rehearse/practice on your own? My car….when I have a car…

7. Favorite way to spend your day off? A Manicure/Pedicure and a dinner at DINNER TIME with my husband.

8. Favorite skin care product? Mario Badescu Glycolic Cleanser.

9. Favorite website? ummm…Netflix.com.  It’s sort of my new obsession…rating movies, and seeing what it picks for me.

10. Superman or Wonder Woman? Duh…Wonder Woman.  Her outfit is FIERCE.

BONUS QUESTIONS:

11. Do you have any strange or unusual talent that nobody knows about? I can flip my under eye-lids into my eyes and look extremely scary. But…it hurts.

12. If you could dream about anyone while you sleep, who would it be? My future child…I just made myself throw up a little.

1. Who inspired you to become a performer? My grandfather continues to be my inspiration every day. I’m living the dream he wasn’t allowed to pursue. He was never encouraged to follow his dream. I’m so lucky to have my grandfather’s support, and every day I think about him and he inspires me. My family is a huge source of inspiration.

2. What is the highest and lowest note you can sing? I’ve never really sat down to figure this out. I know it gets pretty ugly when I try to actually sing low. I get scared when I see a low note on a piece of music haha. And as for how high I can sing? I’m not scared to find out if I can or can’t sing a note… so I just go for it. And it usually works out. Sometimes, however… it CAN be a hit or miss game haha.

3. Who is the one person you haven’t worked with that you would like to? There is a laundry list of people I’d love to work with. I’m a sponge when it comes to soaking up wisdom and stories from seasoned veterans! Watching Sherie Rene Scott, for example, during EVERYDAY RAPTURE was a master class every day. I’m also just starting out with my career so the list of people I WANT to work with… is miles longer than the people I HAVE worked with.

4. If you could dream about anyone while you sleep, who would it be? I don’t dream about people. I dream about adventures.

5. Favorite way to stay in shape? Walking in NYC on a spring day.

6. Boxers or Briefs? Boxer Briefs.

7. Favorite singer/musician? Stevie Wonder meets Ben Folds meets Luther Vandross meets Whitney Houston meets Dave Matthews Band.

8. Favorite quote? Be who you are and say what you feel…. because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind!

9. Favorite Website? http://www.iloveegg.com/egg_english.htm.

10. Superman or Wonder Woman? SUPERMAN. If you know one thing about me… know that Superman has a big place in my heart.

BONUS QUESTIONS:

11. Favorite ride at an amusement park? The Superman ride at Six Flags. original huh???

12. Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts? Tanto Dulce Cafe up in Harlem. Best coffee in the world with RAW SUGAR!! OOOOOOHHHh so good!
