in Life: My mom. She is an incredible woman who
humbly strives to care for and shape the future and the present, of

How can one not be inspired by this?
Working out, walks with my pup, watching documentaries, Survivor, google-journeys,
eating good food and Earth/cosmic science.
Peeves: Slow walkers on the sidewalks of NYC, exceedingly
slow baristas and lazy individuals who don't utilize the
gifts/opportunities they have been given.
Words to Describe You: Perfectionist, outgoing,
You Could Have Three Things on the Island What Would They Be and Why?
Bible – because man cannot live by bread (or rice) alone.
pillow – because it would be a super comfy piece of home and I
perform better well rested.
mirror – because sometimes as a dancer you have to be able to look
at yourself in the eye and say "pull up and push through!
You're not actually that hungry." I think this would work
well for me as a Survivor castaway too.
Contestant You Are Most Like: Yikes. Hopefully I will
be unlike anyone thus far (in a good way), but if I had to pick: Malcolm
Freberg and Stephenie LaGrossa for their hyper-competitiveness and
athleticism; Bob Crowley for his nerdy science knowledge and ingenuity;
and Lisa Whelchel for her faith.
Reason for Being on SURVIVOR: I'm
dying to play this game. You can never truly know what your limits
are until you push them. I'm tired of watching others do it and
I'm ready to experience it for myself firsthand.
You Think You’ll "Survive" SURVIVOR: I'm
good at maintaining a positive mindset, I'm resourceful and I’m
physically fit. I'm not a quitter, I enjoy being outdoors plus I
can make fire.
You Think You Will Be the Sole SURVIVOR: I'm a
people-person who is physically tough, smart, well-spoken and strong
willed; that last characteristic makes me a fighter until the end.
I can lie when needed, I love to compete and I excel under
Does It Mean to You to Play Survivor with Your Loved One?
Having the chance to participate in this
adventure together, not to mention the joint lessons I'm certain we will
take away from it, will not only strengthen, but help fortify our
relationship for the future. I'm really excited about getting to
do such a once in a lifetime thing with the guy I love.
