I came out to LA as a graduated senior fresh outta High School, from Memphis, Tennessee. I left to fulfill my lifelong goals of becoming a musician and actor. There was nothing more satisfying to me than being behind a microphone, or standing on stage. This is more than just my job, its my love, my savior, my everything, and that’s why I give my everything to acting. It’s what makes me feel alive.

I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Ambitious, Honest, and Carefree

Acting is... Everything to me.

My last gig taught me... to be more open with the crew around you.

Proudest performance moment... after performing Henry 4th, as Hotspur

Most embarrassing audition... After I was done with my monologue I completely blanked on the character and author of the play.

Most challenging part... is finding that character inside you.

The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... was when I was 5, I saw my family watching Young Frankenstein, they were laughing their asses off, and I knew I wanted to make people feel that way.

Dying to work with... Leonardo DiCaprio

Was born to play... Petruchio - The Taming of the Shrew

Learn lines by... Repetition

Get into character by... thinking of the bio I’ve written.

Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… Can chug water really fast

Movie I can’t stop talking about... SPLIT

Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… MAD MEN, Shameless, Parks and Rec.

Currently reading… The Motivation Manifesto

Car karaoke tune... LOVE by Nat King Cole

If I weren't an actor, I'd be... dead.

Stranger Things character that best represents me… Chief Hopper

If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… James Franco

Actor crush... James McAvoy

Sign… Sagittarius

If I were a color, I'd be… BLUE

Hotel alias… Dick McWorthalot

LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Any coffee shop, and Venice Beach

The best advice I ever got… Live in the present moment
