Tell us more about your drag roots. As the story goes, you were working with Justin Johnson (Alyssa Edwards) at the time. How did that come about?
I started working with Alyssa Edwards aka Justin Johnson in probably 2006. I had been working at a competition studio that actually competed against his, and after that studio stopped hiring me, I reached out to Justin and was like “Hey, I’m a fabulous teacher. I worked for this other studio. Would it be possible for me to come in, teach a class, show you what it is I do, and see if our styles work together?” Right away we were drawn to each other. We’re both eccentric people. We both have a love of choreography and movement. So yeah, I started working for him then.
