Give us your full drum corps/marching music background. Started marching with Esperanza in 2004. What's your personal practice schedule like? Whenever I can. What does your ideal free day consist of? Getting all dolled up with thegirls, and just spending the day with my closest friends. Favorite pig-out food: Ice cream In the shower you can hear me singing: Whatever is in my head. The last good book I read: "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown The last great film I saw: "Sleepers" Jobs I have/have had: Currently I work at American Eagle and my campus bookstore. My favorite TV show: "CSI" and "Who's Line is it Anyway?" What has been your formative drum corps moment? The Esperanza Experience show my rookie year (2004), which was my best show. What would you be doing next summer if you were not marching?Working and going to summer school. How did you decide to be a member of your corps? My high school coaches were the caption heads of Esperanza. What first attracted you to the drum corps activity? I was not ready to give up color guard after high school, so I wanted to join a drum corps. What advice would you give to young people who want to march? Be prepared to work your butt off, but love every minute of it, because it ends too soon. What I want to be when I "grow up": Grow up? I have no idea. Favorite drum corps personality and why: Can I say the town of
Allentown? Because they are always so excited to see drum corps. Best drum corps show ever and why: My personal favorite was the Cavaliers' 2004 show, "007." The year is 2030. What does a DCI show look like? I am not sure, but my kid will be in it. Feel free to add anything else you'd like. Hey DCI Honor Corps! Do you miss those sweaters yet?
