What are you looking forward to in the 2023 Season?

I’m looking forward to being able to dance without the pandemic complication.

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

It's hard to choose a few, but I'll say every role has been my favorite.

What do you like to do for fun in San Francisco?

I love to explore the beautiful nature around the parks.

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

I like to include self-care into my downtime, for example, take relaxing baths.
