My coming out story is …
My friend Danielle. I decided to tell her I was gay at a football game, in which she responded, “So that’s why you’ll never make out with me!” It was sobering to have that moment met with a laugh and a smile. My mom responded similarly, telling me it didn’t matter as long as I found love.

If I’m checking out a guy, chances are he has …
Beautiful eyes. It’s all about eye contact for me. That reveals a lot about a person. Also, pecs are kind of my thing. So there is that, too.


My worst date was …
Someone took me out for ice cream and then told me 15 minutes in he had purchased a hotel room. Ummmm ... no. It was the shortest date ever. I'd say 20 minutes in total — enough time to finish my ice cream!

You’re an actor, so you must be into role play? 
I wouldn't say no to a man in uniform.

My friends are constantly ribbing me about …
My dance walking. I'm always running through choreography in my head, but I do it while I'm walking in the street. I look like a crazy person, I'm sure. Oh, and my love of Britney Spears, I never hear the end of it about that one.

If it’s Saturday night, you’re most likely to find me …
At Koresh's dance studios. If not there, there is nothing like a glass of wine and an episode of Sailor Moon. Yes, I said it, Sailor Moon.

Whitney, Mariah or Celine? 
Britney.

That wasn't one of the options!
Okay, then Celine. Her range is amazing.

If I could sleep with one celebrity, it would be …
Colin Farrell, without a doubt.

My attitude about the gym is …
It's a way of life for a physical actor. People don't often associate actors with athletes, but we are. The gym helps me train for a variety of roles, so it has become a part of my daily routine. There are other fun ways to exercise, too: dancing, circus training. It's always good to break the sense of routine.
