If you could have dinner with anyone from history, who would it be?
Cleopatra. Because what a BOSS LADY. And in addition to ruling Egypt and juggling multiple male suitors, her style was ON POINT!
What is the most courageous thing you’ve ever done and why?
About eight years ago, I woke up one morning and realized I was extremely unhappy with the life I was currently living, so I made a change. I was in my second year of college halfway through the semester. Midterms were approaching and I just couldn’t do it anymore, so I quit. I didn’t go to any of my classes that day, or the next day, or the day after that. I took on two additional jobs, saved as much money as I could, packed up my car and drove 1,400 miles to Los Angeles. Eight years later, I’ve never looked back.
If you could choose your own rockstar name, what would it be?
Who is your favorite rockstar and why?
Freddie Mercury. He was fearless on stage. He constantly pushed the envelope, and although his performances were wildly theatrical and outrageous, you could still see and feel HIM.
What’s one thing you’re certain of?
I’m certain that music can help heal the soul.
