What are the first three things that you do every morning?

Cuddle my cat Zulu, drink coffee again with Zulu on my lap, and read my book.

What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?

Seeing every dancer around the world going through the same hardships helped me to continue working at home during Covid. Also having the task of maintaining my ballet technique and fitness kept me busy and focused while at home.

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

I love watercolor painting in my spare time as it allows me to focus on something else other than ballet.

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

I enjoy going for walks or running by the Marina Green.

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

My favorite performance so far has been dancing Cygnets in Swan lake and Blake Works I.
