Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight, or night? Why?
Twilight and night hybrid, without question. Performance is in my blood, and all good performances happen as or after the sun goes down. Give me a powerful sunset followed by the majestic moon.
If you could choose your age forever, what age would you choose and why?
Each year of my life has brought its own ups and downs and unique experiences. If I ever find a specific age that resonates with perfection, I’ll choose that one. Otherwise, I’ll keep experiencing what comes as it comes.
Which is your favorite way to dance? With others or alone?
Anything worth doing, is worth sharing. We listen to and perform music to connect with each other, and whether that dance is a choreographed routine, an outburst of collective creativity, or hundreds of bodies bouncing and colliding in a sweaty mess…we all move together in amazing ways.
What superhero do you most resonate with and why?
While it can change for me on a day to day basis (I like superheroes and the inspirations for so many of them) I would likely have to go with Thor. Him being of Norse mythology is quite special to me, but also how much of who he is being based around being “worthy” will always resonate with me as I often try to look at my behavior under the lens of what would be deemed as ‘worthy’ and just.
If you were a vegetable, which one would you be and why?
Easily, the potato. I like to pride myself on my versatility and my ability to adapt to whatever need has been put before me. The potato is found in numerous cuisines in numerous forms and time and time again we see this humble vegetable shine. I like to hope that I am similar in that I can excel in various ways based on what is needed of me at any given moment.
If you were to geek out on something, what would you geek out!
I could go on for pages about many things, but I will narrow it down two my two greatest loves. Shakespeare, and collaborative storytelling. I have been a performer for nearly 25 years, and much of that time has been focused primarily on the works of William Shakespeare. Additionally, I am a supporter of collaborative storytelling, as we are all storytellers and some individuals merely need the opportunity to share their voice and experience with those who are willing to listen.
