I'm a very competitive person, and I always competed with myself. Every year, I'd take six weeks with my band, crew and choreographer to put a new show together. We'd spend eight hours per day, seven days per week putting a show together to beat the last year's show.
Seven and half years ago I began my own journey. For me and my family it was a time of adversity. But during that adversity I derived a deeper faith. And born out of that adversity was a commitment to devote myself to those people and to those issues that truly matter to me.

Cal Ripken, Jr.

Dance has always been my number one. I started when I was seven years old and I've had the opportunity to work with some really amazing artists.
I was given a dictionary when I was seven, and I read it because I had nothing else to read. I read it the way you read a book.
