First introduction to the industry:

I grew up next to a theme park and spent my summers there, but the rest of my year was all about theatre.

What I listen to at work:

I’m a mood listener, so I’m usually playlist-hopping every day. My big genres are usually pop, indie, and soul.

Dream Vacation:

I’ve always wanted to go cage diving with great whites, so somewhere like Hawaii or South Africa. Singapore is also high on my list; it seems like a futuristic utopia of diverse cultures, greenery, great design, and incredible food!

When I'm not at work...

I’m most often cooking, reading, taking care of my plants, and keeping up with pop culture.
