What's Your Proudest Moment as a Dancer? Why?

Any time our audiences appreciate the hard work that goes into a performance and any time my family can come see me dance.

I love San Francisco because...

Of my friends--they are my second family. Also, the city is beautiful.

What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?

Helping other people on Zoom classes.

If you weren’t a dancer, what would your job be?

A soccer player.

What are some of your favorite roles or ballets you've danced while at SF Ballet?

Benjamin (Cinderella), Benvolio ( Romeo & Juliet), and Henry (Frankenstein)
