Why did you join LCC?
I joined LCC because theater was my favorite thing about high school- especially the sense of family and belonging. I saw an LCC show my first quarter at UCLA and thought, 'Man, this could be the place for me' and THIS ANSWER HAS MORE SAP THAN MAPLE TREES. IN CANADA.

Hobbies & Skills
I dance in front of a paying audience wearing a coconut bra. This is not a joke answer. Sometimes I do it for free. I also give lessons. Um...I also practice capoeira (if you don't know what that is and want to see an early 90's movie starring the announcer guy from Iron Chef America, check out Only the Strong). I am a Girl Scout FOR LYFE. My skills involve overly verbose answers to questions.

If you were to eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Lembas bread NOT EVEN A SECRET NERD ANYMORE, GUYS but I mean, come on. Realistically, it's either that or like a multi-vitamin. And that's boring. I like how I use the word realistically to compare two answers, one of which is entirely fictional.

Where are you the most ticklish?
My sides and my feet. I have a friend who likes to ambush and poke me because I make this weird high-pitched 'NEE' noise. I would like to maintain that I totally do not sound like that.

Who would you be and what would you do, if you can be someone else for an hour?
NANCY DREW OH MY GOSH SHE IS MY ETERNAL ROLE MODEL AND KING NANCY FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSE and I would drive around in my classy blue convertible like a total BAMF and solve a crapton of mysteries, kick a bunch of butt, and uphold TRUTH JUSTICE AND THE AMERICAN WAY. Bam.

What movie would you like to be trapped in?
INCEEEPPPTTTIIOOONN because then you could ride the layers out through the movie itself and not be trapped anymore or some sort of existential crisis crap. Barring that, the extended Blu-Ray edition of Lord of the Rings. All twelve-ish hours. And I will find Elijah Wood and just look at his eyes.

What would the autobiographical movie of your life be called and which celebrity will play you?
This Title Is Not Related to the Plot In Any Way (And Is Also Overly Long), starring a moose and narrated by Robert Downey Jr.
