What do you enjoy most about performing?
The thing I enjoy most about performing is being able to express my individuality and style. I love how everyone is created differently and performing is one way I can showcase my very own individuality. I also love to inspire others, and I hope by them seeing me perform will aspire them to do the same.

What is your dancing background?
Hip Hop: Dance competitions, national television appearances, opening act for celebrities, background dancer for local music artists, music video appearances (local artists), and national competitive dance teams

Outside of dancing, what are your hobbies and interests?
Some of my hobbies are: cooking, roller skating, bowling, exercising, swimming and traveling. A few things that I find interesting are: all genres of music, cultural diversities and health and wellness.

What's one interesting fact about you?
I had the chance to perform on national television not one, not two but three times!

What is the best thing about Indiana fans?
Their loyalty and support for one another. I love to see the fans be so passionate and relentless when it comes to supporting the Pacers.

If you could be a backup dancer for one musical artist, who would it be and why?
Janet Jackson because I love her style and direction. She truly expresses herself in a way that inspires others to want to be a part of her legacy!
