Birth. There was never a moment it wasn't a question for me.

You know the real truth is I never thought (seriously) that I would do anything else. Other than a very short-lived time when I was in 6th grade on “bring your parent to work day.”

My friend’s dad, who was a lawyer, wrote on the board what he makes a year. I thought to myself that that number could buy me A LOT of Pogs. I wanted to be a lawyer for a hot second, but beyond that... ALWAYS a performer.

I always knew I wanted to perform. I knew I wanted to perform for a living when I found out I didn't have to do it for free :-)
