|Where you were born/where you were raised:||I was born in Hollywood, CA. Raised in Los Angeles and Orange County.|
|Zodiac Sign:||I’m a Leo/Virgo cusp.|
|What your parents did/do for a living:||My father is an actor/comedian/pianist and his wife is a publicist. My mother works with horses.|
|Siblings:||My little brother, Joe. He’s not so little anymore. He’s a high school senior, actually, but I’m in denial.|
|Current audition song/monologue:||My favorite audition songs aren’t from the current pop/rock genre or musical theatre. |
I guess I gravitate towards older, more obscure songs. I think it’s good to walk in with something they haven’t already heard a few times that day.
|Special skills:||I started teaching myself to play piano when I was very young. I’ve been writing music since I was about 15 years old.|
|Something you're REALLY bad at:||Bowling. I will just never be good at bowling.|

|Your personal vocal idols, living or dead:||Tom Waits, Fiona Apple, Andrew Bird, Danny Elfman, Tori Amos, Jack White|
|Music that makes you cry, any genre:||"In the Arms of an Angel" by Sarah McLachlan… but only when it comes on during that animal shelter commercial.|
|MAC or PC?||MAC. But I’m not good with either.|
|Must-see TV show(s):||"Seinfeld"|
|Last good movie you saw:||"The Sessions"|
|Three favorite cities:|| Portland, OR|
New York City deserves a shout out though.
|First CD/Tape/LP you owned:|| My father has always been a huge fan of classical music, so I grew up listening to all the great composers. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Mozart, Mahler (no pun)|
|First stage kiss:||I’m not completely sure about this (my apologies if I stage-kissed you and have since forgotten about it… nothing personal) but I think I had my first stage kiss in Dracula. So yeah… I lost my stage-kiss virginity to the king of the vampires.|
