What has been your proudest moment as a dancer? Why?
Dancing Romeo in Romeo and Juliet when I was 20 years old. That’s when I met my wife who was dancing my Juliet, and we have been living together for 19 years now.
If I weren't a dancer, I'd be...
An actor, painter, or opera singer.
I love San Francisco because...
All of my dreams came true in this city.
