I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Genuine, Electric, and Loving…
My last acting gig taught me… You project what you feel, You attract what's meant for you.
Proudest performance moment… Still new to the game haven't had one in the professional sense but I've had some really fervent moments in (acting) class.
Most embarrassing audition… It would definitely have to be my very first audition which was an open casting at the mall….I swear to you. This was before I was trained or had any knowledge of how things went down so you could imagine how that went…yikes! But something told me go for it and it was horrible but I loved it.
Most challenging part… From that audition in particular I don't remember much because I had so much adrenalin and basically blacked out. I was a newborn at that moment.
The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... The day I went to that open call haha. I guess I've always had the bug but it really bit the hell out of me that day. I've never felt anything like that before and it changed me.
If I weren't an actor, I'd be... A magician probably
Dying to work with... COUNTLESS BRILLIANT DIRECTORS; Alfonso Cuarón, Christopher Nolan, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Wes Anderson, James Cameron, Tim Burton etc.. As far as actors go, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Gary Oldman for sure.
Was born to play... I feel like every job I'll get I was born to play, but it would be interesting to play like an otherworldly being or a really conflicted robot of some sort…or a viking.
Learn lines by... Not over thinking it. First I read it entirely a bunch to fully understand what is going on then I start pinpointing where certain connections meet and I start to memorize the lines naturally.
Get into character by... Develop memories/back story as the "character" itself.
Acting is… A compilation of things but mostly letting out our multiple personalities / characteristics that we all have inside us in the most honest, vulnerable way possible.
Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… I would say I'm a pretty darn good amateur piercer haha
Movie I can’t stop talking about... The Fifth Element! A classic in my eyes. If you haven't seen it, I would be shocked and appalled!
Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… Re-watching Sons of Anarchy, Twin Peaks, & Penny Dreadful
Currently reading… The Last Night of The Earth, poems by Charles Bukowski & Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters
Car karaoke tune... American Girl by Tom Petty/The Heartbreakers and I cannot resist belting out I Write Sins Not Tragedies by Panic! At the Disco (I know, emo right)
Star Wars character that best represents me... R2-D2 because I often make sounds when I can't find my words
If they made a movie about my life, I’d be played by… I'm not sure if I'd want a movie based on my life. Let's keep some things a mystery, shall we?
Actor crush... Oh so so many haha... TOM HARDY always and Rooney Mara
Sign… Aquarius 💙
If I were a color, I'd be… I think I'm very fluid (or indecisive) so I'd be a different color every day, but my favorite is amber.
Fave travel destination… There are so many places I want to travel to that I haven't yet but I definitely have a special place in my heart for San Francisco.
LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… Any museum/gallery, anywhere in nature, and AMAW (my acting studio)
The best advice I ever got… You can't control time but you can control what lies within yours; "How will you know if you never try?" - Mama; "Be open-minded and widen your view." - Dad
