You have modeled and currently perform in a Vegas show. Which do you prefer being in front of the camera or on stage?
While it's sometimes fun to play the diva at a photo shoot and having my picture taken a thousand times, in the end my first love is the stage. Nothing beats the energy you get stepping out onto that stage in front of a packed audience and getting to do what you love, with fun people, for a living. Surprisingly on stage there's not quite as much pressure. When you make a mistake on stage only that audience might know it, but when you take a bad picture it might exist until the end of time.
You worked on a cruise ship. How long did you do that and what was your overall experience?
Actually, after performing on a cruise ship on and off for three years and taking this little break in Vegas, I'm planning on going back again in November. Ship life has its ups and downs just like every other job. On one hand, nothing beats waking up every morning in a different country or going to a different beach almost everyday. There aren't many jobs that pay you to see the world. On the other hand, seasick nights and living below decks in an underwater sardine can leave a lot to be desired.
Since you actually live in Vegas how often do you gamble?
It's a gamble every time I go out to a gay club in Vegas because you never know what kind of riff-raff is going to be there. Truthfully though I'm too much of a penny pincher to hit the casinos, I much prefer to put my money away for a rainy day. Of course I'm still waiting for one of those here in Vegas...
What is life in Vegas compared to living in New York?
I really enjoy the fact that Vegas has cut down my cost of living, but I miss all of the culture and variety that NYC has to offer. In NYC you can walk the same streets everyday but never see the same person twice. In Vegas the performing community is considerably smaller and everyone knows everyone's business. It's sometimes like living in a bright and flashy late night junior high. However, I'm really not sure which one I prefer.
You were also a page on The Late Show with David Letterman. What was that like?
I had a lot of fun working for the Late Show. I met a lot of great people and learned what it takes to keep a live TV show running everyday. As far as my working relationship with Dave... the one and only time I met him .. He gave me the once over, a dirty look, and a slight scoff as he walked away. I guess I never stayed at the show long enough to get high enough on the totem pole to even warrant a snide remark.
Do you mind saying what show you work on in Vegas? I'll be there in September would you recommend that I check it out?
I'm in the classic Vegas show Jubilee! It's America's answer to the Lido in Paris, but it's staged on one of the biggest stages in the world. Nowhere else can you see as many feathers, diamonds, thongs, and massive sets in one show. Not to forget that the Titanic sinks on stage every night. I don't know any gay man that wouldn't want to see 65 six-foot tall topless girls covered in diamonds and feathers and 20 men in black leather G-strings. If you don't enjoy this spectacular show, even if it's just for these reasons, then you should lose ten points on your gay card.
Where do you see yourself living next?
Well I'm going to be cruising the Caribbean and Baltic Seas in my sardine can again in November. However, after that my plans are up in the air. Being a performer I have to go where the jobs are. Since I'm still young and unattached my goal is to try to have as many performing experiences as possible. I'm up for anything.. After the ship I'm thinking Paris.
What is your ultimate dream job?
Oh gosh.. I don't know. I've always wanted to do a show on Broadway and lately I've been setting my sites on the small screen.. Maybe a sitcom. However, I'll be happy as long as I'm still performing or in front of the camera and not in the poor house.
What do you see yourself doing in the next five years?
I don't know what I'm doing tomorrow, let alone the next five years. I'm shocked that I kind of have a clue what I'll be doing for the next year. You'll have to try to catch up with me next year and maybe I'll have a better idea for the unanswered years 2-5.
