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.

When you have downtime from productions, what do you do to relax?

I’m studying and have 2 kids, so I don’t really have much downtime. But when I do it mostly involves a bottle of wine or a couple of beers. Occasionally I play cricket out in Marin, and sometimes when the NFL is on I get permission to watch Raiders games in my garage. It’s a glamorous life.

If you weren't dancing, what would your career be?

I would be either a professional beer taster at a brewery, a farmer, or a voice actor on the kids show Bluey.

I love San Francisco because…

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

What are you the most proud of?

Danielle Rowe’s choreography (my partner), and my kids, Aggie and Gigi.
