What’s your biggest challenge as a dancer? Why?

Convincing people that this is my full-time job and that I get paid to do it.

What is your perfect day?

Wednesday! I love that it’s spelled nothing like it’s pronounced.

I love San Francisco because…

There are so many great parks, beautiful coastal areas, awesome restaurants, and interesting places to catch Pokémon.
