What's your favorite costume? Why?

Von Rothbart in Tomasson's Swan Lake is one of my favorites. It not only incorporates a terrific wardrobe with different variants for each act, but it also uses wigs and makeup to complete the ensemble which helps me bring the character to life.

What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?

Performing a principal role (Hilarion) for an international audience for the first time in my career, while the Company was on tour in China. It really hit home to me about what I have accomplished and how much more there is that I want to do and share as a performing artist.

When I'm not working, I enjoy...

Photography! It is another platform that allows me to share a piece of myself and how I see the world.

What do you like to do for fun in San Francisco?

Enjoy our many parks and surrounding nature! Our food scene isn't bad either.

What are you looking forward to in the 2023 Season?

Bringing more art and magic to our audiences!
