What is your favorite ballet?
My favorite ballet is Jewels by George Balanchine. The contrast in feeling between all three acts is mesmerizing and leaves something for everyone to enjoy.

What makes you laugh?
My friends, my partner, my cats, life, movies, music. Pretty much everything will make me laugh at some point.

If I weren’t a ballet dancer, I would be…
A city planner. I’ve always loved maps and the complexity behind city development. You’ll often find me playing City Skylines, a popular city-building game.
