I’m from all over! I was born in NYC and then moved to Shanghai, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and now San Francisco.
How long have you been pole dancing and what inspired you to take it up?
I’ve been pole dancing for seven years…People used to always ask if I was a dancer when I did yoga and while growing up. Eventually I figured I should be a dancer so I googled “adult dance classes” and pole dancing was the first thing that came up.
Is it difficult to take up pole dancing?
It is VERY difficult. I wasn’t immediately hooked when I first started even though it feels like I was in retrospect. It actually took watching videos on YouTube that got me really inspired to keep trying. I used to watch my idols and wish that one day I could be half as good as them. Today, I’m so grateful to be able to set the bar for myself instead of using someone else. My one advice is to stick with it consistently for at least 12 weeks before giving up.
Which is the best compliment you have received?
Someone once commented that they admired me for my bravery and courage. That was the best compliment. I don’t get called brave often and when I do, it feels really special.
Is there something in life you can’t get enough of?
I can’t get enough of food 🙁 Food has always been utilitarian for me, but somewhere in the last year, I became a foodie.
Which 3 things do you enjoy doing most in the city you live in?
My friends, pole community, and the views in San Francisco.
If you could change or improve one thing about the world, what will it be?
The way we handle the environment. We are in dire need of a better system for sustainability. It all starts with acknowledgement and awareness.
What is a funny attempt a guy has tried to know you?
Wow, I could probably write a book about these. Men are actually quite creative when they want to be, unfortunately, they don’t know how to properly harness their skills.
