Words to live by/favorite quote: “If the sky that we look upon, should tumble and fall. And the mountains should crumble to the sea. I won’t cry, I won’t cry, no I won’t shed a tear, just as long as you stand, stand by me.” –Ben E. King

What would be your superpower?: Seeing the future.

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: After I moved home to Texas, I realized I wasn’t finished performing! DCC auditions were coming up and I decided to give it a shot. Not only am I able to continue my passion, but I gained a great group of friends along the way!

What are some of your DCC highlights?: I tell people all the time, when in uniform, we become Superman! Being able to give back to the community, visit hospitals, visit veterans is what truly makes this job amazing. I love the charity work that I think many people forget we do, it’s the best part of being a DCC!

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: Never give up on your dreams!
