When asked about his upcoming performance for the National Kidney Foundation of Arizona’s Dancing with the Stars, he reminisced, “When I was very young my Mother and Father would go dancing at the Martinique Ballroom in Chicago. I’ve always been very attracted to the music and style of the 1940’s Swing-era. I hope I do my parents proud. Who knew ballroom dancing would be the most challenging thing I have ever done!”
