Q&A

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

Dancing the final pas de deux with Vanessa Zahorian in Liam Scarlett's Fearful Symmetries. As a first year corps member, it was a privilege to get to work with a principal dancer—Vanessa was lovely.

WHEN I'M NOT WORKING I ENJOY...

Working on my own projects outside the dance world. I've been doing a lot of painting and playing guitar.

IF I WEREN'T A DANCER I'D BE...

A photographer for National Geographic.
