My feet were sweating so profusely that I was nervous I would trip going up the stairs! But if I was picked to be one of the Top 20, I probably would go nuts….doing as many crazy, stupid dance moves as possible!

At what age did you first start to dance?

At the age of 3.

Do you have any formal dance training?

Yes, I started dancing at the age of 3 and began taking formal Ballet, Tap and Jazz classes. I have currently been training as a dancer for 15 years now.

What other training/talents do you have?

Other than dance? I can take a Starburst wrapper off with just my tongue!

Do you currently have a job?

I am an assistant for West Coast Dance Explosion, which is a dance convention that teaches kids ages 6-18 to dance. I have worked for them for a year.

Are you currently in school?

I went to school for dance at Marymount Manhattan in New York City for a year (2011-2012), but knew it wasn't for me at the end and began taking online classes at a local community college near my house in Northville, Michigan.

What dancer from another season would be your dream dance partner?

Robert Roldan or Marko.

Which dancer from another season were you most inspired by?

Allison Holker because every time I watch her you can tell she dances from her heart and makes you completely feel what she is feeling. She is such a great role model on and off stage.

What choreographer do you look forward to working with?

SO MANY! Travis Wall, Stacey Tookey, Dee Caspary, Sonya Tayeh ... and all the ballroom choreographers!!

What would people be most surprised to learn about you?

That I am obsessed with the "Sims 3" games ... obsessed! Such a computer nerd. LOL.
