I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… goofy, passionate, resilient
My last acting gig taught me… I learned from my last acting gig that you must have patience when dealing with directors new to directing.
Proudest performance moment… Any moment where I've been truthful in my acting.
Most embarrassing audition… I had an audition for Nickelodeon when I was a kid and butchered the name of my agency during my slate. It was terrible.
Most challenging part… Don't believe I've experienced this yet. Of course it's always interesting finding the character at the start of a new project but you just manage and get the job done!
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... In 4th grade my teacher, Mr. Clarken, had the class perform 'The Lewis and Clark Expedition' and I was invested start to finish lol
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... I would be a world traveling journalist. The lives and cultures of other people is something that interests me very much.
Dying to work with... Honestly would love to be on a Netflix original. They produce really great content.
Was born to play... I was born to play any role that is not completely similar to myself. The fun with acting is stepping into someone else's world.
Learn lines by... I break down the script and figure out why I'm saying what I'm saying. Also saying it over and over until I can say it in my sleep (not literally).
Get into character by... I like to calm myself as much as possible and get myself grounded. Get into that person's head space.
Acting is… Acting is living in the moment, being truthful, being open with who you're acting with and listening to who you're acting with.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I'm super great at walking because I still don't drive. yeah yeah I know
Movie I can’t stop talking about... Get Out!!! If you haven't seen it, shame on you. A+++++
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… The Office, The Get Down, and Abstract.
Currently reading… You Are a Bad Ass; How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life by Jen Sincero. Picked it up at Sam French and I must say it's a great read.
Car karaoke tune... Hey Ya! by Outkast. Never gets old
Star Wars character that best represents me... Not really into Star Wars or anything super sci-fi like that. More of a documentary type of guy
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… Cuba Gooding Jr.
Actor crush... Amanda Seyfried.....those eyes thoe
Sign… Leos rule the world baby!!!!
If I were a color, I'd be… Royal Blue
Fave travel destination… I would love to go to Greece
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Mulholland Drive. Something about the hills, views, and homes give me such inspiration and hope.
The best advice I ever got… I can do anything I put my mind to. Always stay true to who I am, and be thankful for what I do have for there are those who are less fortunate.
