- What is your dream vacation destination and why? My dream vacation destination is Monaco. The James Bond films "Goldeneye" and " Never Say Never Again" were filmed and set there and I have been smitten ever since. Honorable Mention: Montenegro, for the same reason.
- Are you an introvert or extrovert? I am an introvert. Though I do enjoy performing, I value solitude and alone time more than most. My social battery is very limited, so I preferably like to utilize it in the most necessary spaces.
- What is your happiest moment in life? My happiest moment in life was the closing performance of my very first musical, Altar Boyz. I truly loved the experience from the cast to the rehearsal process, the music, and of course the many performances. To this day, this is my absolute favorite theatre experience and I hold it as the standard to all of my musical theatre endeavors.
