1. Who inspired you to become a performer? Sam Williams.  He was my first dance teacher and I worked with him until I was 16.  He is the greatest performer I have ever seen.

3. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received? Don’t be too comfortable.

4. What is your most embarrassing on-stage moment? I was a chorus member in a production of My Fair Lady.  I’ve always had very short hair so I was given a wig.  Well there is crazy hard partnering in My Fair Lady and at one point, I did a handstand onto my partners shoulders.  One performance, I went to do my handstand and my wig got in the way.  My hand slipped and I fell off stage…into the pit.

5. Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts? What do you order? Neither.  I’m a tea junkie and usually make it at home.
