Thank you for taking the time for this interview, Brian!

Which of the REVERIE performers have you worked with before?

This is my first time working with most of the cast though they are all my friends which makes it all more fun! Vincent (Disco Daddy) and I have worked together before and I've also worked with the choreographer Nico O'Connor.

How did you choose the Bourbon Room as your venue for REVERIE?

I like being myself in a heightened state, which in itself is a character.

Who was the first to recognize your vocal talents growing up?

My first ever coach Leigh Scaritt.

What piece of advice did a mentor give you that you adhere to to this day?

You have to believe what you're saying if you want anyone else to.

Holy S**t! There's a lot of people here!
