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.


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.
