Favorite Ballets

One of my favorite ballets is La Bayadere. I love it because I love the score, and feel like I could really embody Solor as a character. He's a warrior, just like me. 

Defining Moment Onstage

My proudest moment so far on stgae would have to be performing the role of Prince Siegfried at the Wortham Theater during Swan Lake. It was amazing to debut that role at one of my dream companies.
