Zach Trimmer (Lt. Joe Cable)  with Alison T. Chi (Liat) in South Pacific.
  "I grew up in San Mateo, CA, which is just a few miles south of San Francisco. I have 2 older sisters, and we always had pets-- anything from dogs and cats to frogs and iguanas. 
I was a pretty late bloomer, as I only attempted to sing for the first time at around age 15 or 16. But, once I did, I knew right away it was how I wanted to make a living.

Even though I wasn't terribly familiar with the show, I had obviously heard of "South Pacific." Once we got into rehearsals, I was surprised how many songs I recognized. 
 Once I was cast in the show, I watched the movie, so I know it now! I think any crossover from film to musical (or vice versa) is great because it exposes different audiences to various forms of performing arts. If it puts butts in the seats, I'm all for it! 
This is my first show at WBT, and so far, I have loved every minute. The process is fast and furious, but it is made possible and comfortable by the incredibly professional and supportive team.

It's always too hard to narrow down favorite shows, because there are too many. I love different shows for different reasons, but I will say that a role I am dying to play is Bob Gaudio in "Jersey Boys."
I love spending time with friends, and I love snuggling with my dog. I also have a small obsession with Rubik's cubes. :-)

It may be surprising, but I have almost NO musical theatre on my iPod. I have mostly pop/rock and r&b, i.e; Marc Broussard and Robin Thicke.
