What's your favorite costume? Why?
The Carabosse costume from Ben Stevenson’s Sleeping Beauty because it’s so dark, creepy, and elaborate—the snakes on the tutu are a nice touch too.
What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?
It’s a toss-up between dancing the role of Lensky in Onegin or winning the silver medal at the Helsinki International Ballet Competition in 2009.
If I weren't a dancer I'd be...
A sommelier or a travel guide for the Travel Channel.
Who are some of your favorite choreographers to work with at SF Ballet?
My favorite choreographers to work with have been the ones who have given me a real chance to prove myself . Also, the ones who have believed in me even when I found difficult to do so.
When you have downtime from productions, what do you do to relax?
I really enjoy exploring the city by foot. Also, seeing movies at the Castro Theater. Especially classics with Marilyn Monroe, Gene Kelly, or Judy Garland.
