How did you get into music?

I was always a fan of opera, but I never thought I could sing. It wasn’t until later in university where I was studying acting that I was encouraged to try singing and found that I had an operatic voice.

What music do you love to dance to?

I love dancing to Latin music, it brings out my Latino heritage. My abilities as a dancer however I cannot speak to.

Which famous person would you like to have dinner with?

I would love to have dinner with Julia Child especially if she cooks.
