Who do you play in The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer: I'm in the Ensemble, but more specifically: Sassy Tree Fairy 2, and a Troll!

Describe your character(s) in three words: Sassy. Tree. Fairy. Done.

Tell us about The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer: It's an awesome adaptation of Ibsen's Peer Gynt. Whips, and mirrors, and GAYS! Oh my!

Describe The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer in three words: Twisted. Sick. Sexy!

Who is the biggest liar?: Me. And I'm not lying.

Who is the biggest troll?: Cleary Austin! I modeled my Troll character after him.

Who is the sexiest?: Everyone's gonna say Nick, but I'm I think it's Adam. There's something sexy to me about a squiggly troll.

Who is the most mischievous?: Definitely me!

Most likely to go on an adventure?: Taylor. But I could just be type casting. I can also see Austin going on some serious adventures.

Most likely to get caught up in a cult?: Maddie for sure. Bless her heart!

Which bandana best describes you?: ?? Whichever one means the butt sex.

Favorite (gay) bar in NYC: Albatross (Reppin' that ASTORIA Pride!)

Fun, laughs, or good time?: Laughs.

Do you talk to yourself in a mirror?: Not as much as I should. Usually, I yell a quick "You is kind. You is smart. You is important." before I leave the apartment but that’s about it.

What is your favorite moment in The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer: It's being a sassy tree and watching the hysterical Molly Kelleher and Corinne Britti do their thing! They are some funny ass ladies!

What is the most rewarding thing about being a part of the Dreamer team?: I'd have to say it's being a part of a show about a dreamer. I grew up making up stories and lying to my parents, and getting myself in some strange situations.

Why should we come see The Illusory Adventures of a Dreamer?: Its a group of sexy mother truckers telling an awesome story mixed with a lot of sex, some drugs, and and me! You should run to the theatre and see us 😄 No joke!
