Where did you grow up, and what is your current home town?
I grew up in Denver, Colorado, close to the Lakewood/Littleton area. Currently I live in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Can you share a favorite pole dance photo of yourself?
And a favorite non-pole-life photo?
I LOOOVE this photo. It’s me and of my best friends Julien Miguel, my number one cheerleader, at the airport on our way to Ohio together for our first ever pole competition in 2015 (putting on our “game” faces). Kind of pole-related, but not really :D #BestFriendForLife
What’s your go-to pole move?
Iron X! Always been my trick. I LOVE that thing. The first time I saw it I was like “yes! That! That!” And I pull it out for shows, photoshoots, competitions, warming up, teaching, etc. etc. Also fonji’s. That will always be one of my favorite tricks.
Give us a sexy floorwork song.
This was the song I chose to dance to in the Pole Theatre USA 2015 Classique division (video link below). I gotten so much better since then! hahaha
What’s a YouTube pole dance video we should check out?
Phoenix Kazree’s winning Pole Art Italy 2015 routine! She is PERFECTION. She is dance, she is emotion, she is flexibility, strength, energy, tricks, lines, flow. This routine, if you haven’t seen it, is definitely one of the best pole performances ever done. This woman always has the most amazing, beautiful, and unique combos. And she’s also one of the best teachers I have had the pleasure of having!
Give us a song that makes you want to immediately strip off your clothes and jump on the pole.
My all-time favorite band, one of my all time favorite songs. Rock n’ roll!
