What’s a surprising or fun fact people wouldn’t know about you?

“My Siri is set to French to make sure I keep up my French. When you’re relying on a computer to understand you in another language, it forces you to make sure you’re pronouncing things properly.”

Who are your heroes?

“I have many heroes, but Stephen Sondheim is the first that comes to mind in terms of the writing of music theatre. On a personal level, my grandma and my parents nurtured my love of the arts and have always supported me in pursuing a career in the theatre industry.”
