Everyone has a secret talent, what is yours?

Anytime I’ve developed a secret talent, I quickly find a way to make it a not-so-secret talent! In the past few years, I became a comic. As a dancer my whole life meant lots of injuries and I didn’t know what to do so that I could keep performing. I’ve always enjoyed making people laugh, so It went from being a hobby to a reality! Also, despite being a carnivore, I enjoy experimenting with making veg dishes. Sometimes it just results in straight up mush though!

If you were voted our cover girl, what would you do with $10,000?

If I was your cover girl, I’d pay my parents back the money they gave me while I was establishing myself, and I’d finally learn to drive and buy a starter car! (Nothing fancy of course). I would also like to go to Sonoma to wine taste, but let’s face it, I’d probably use it to go to NYC and slug it out on the comedy circuit (temporarily) worry free.
