How did you get into theater?
Ever since I could remember I have loved to put on little performances for anyone who would care to watch… It was a scary jump going from performing for my parents to an entire audience. But that terrifying decision changed my life. I had finally found an environment where people accepted how weird I was, and for the first time in my life I was actually good at something.
Who are some of your role models in entertainment?
It’s hard to find role models in the business today who continue to remain humble and set good examples. There is only one person who I can think of that would fit this mindset: Sutton Foster… Not only does she have the voice of an angel, but she can also dance, and act — oh, and not to mention she is BEAUTIFUL. She also hasn’t let any of her talent get to her head!
