What is your favorite ballet?
I have many favorite ballets, but Petite Mort by Jiří Kylián holds my heart.

I love Pittsburgh because…
Every salad deserves the right to be topped with french fries.

Do you have a favorite vacation spot?
My favorite vacation spot is Paris, France. I love the food and culture and always leave feeling inspired.
