I am (use a max. of 3 words to describe yourself)… Energetic, Goofy, Over-Achiever

My last acting gig taught me… To be kind to every single person you meet. You never know who will be willing to help you.

Proudest performance moment… A project named “What Was Lost”. I played a father (believe it or not) who loses a son. That project gave me the belief in myself to pursue acting professionally. 

Most embarrassing audition… Was my very first audition in LA. The person asked, “Can you hold a 1 on your left hand and a 3 on your right” and when I lifted my hands up, they were visibly shaking. The CD said “Ah must of had too much caffeine this morning”.....I quickly agreed with her.

Movie I can’t stop talking about... Forrest Gump. Love that movie and it reminds me so much of home.

Top three Netflix / Amazon shows in my queue… House of Cards, Rick and Morty, 11.22.63 (I added Hulu in there) 

Currently reading… Is it bad that I haven’t read a book for leisure since I was 10?......

Car karaoke tune... Anything of The Weeknd’s new album Starboy! (A song called Attention mostly)

Would switch careers with… Kevin Spacey (I got to meet him at the Netflix Emmy’s party this year!!)

The moment I knew I wanted to be an actor... When I was a kid I was diagnosed with ADHD. I typically had more energy than the average kid (wasn’t always a great thing with my teachers). I had a hard time fitting in. When I was 10 though, I did an after school theatre program. Joining that production, being on that stage, and being able to use my energy to make people happy and laugh made me feel like I finally belonged somewhere. That was the moment I knew I wanted find out more about acting.

If I weren't an actor, I'd be... In D.C. pursuing a life in public service

Dying to work with... Kevin Spacey (shocker right?)

Get mistaken for… Jason Biggs  

Was born to play... I haven’t found that yet.....just another reason to keep looking

Learn lines by... Locking myself in the room and repetition, repetition, repetition

Get into character by... Research and relying on that research

Acting is… Reacting

Special skill I wouldn't put on my resume… Under advice of counsel, I invoke my 5th amendment privilege....

Secret I want everyone to know… I “attended” Madonna’s Oscar party.... (see above)

Actor crush... Emma Watson (like every guy in the freaking world)

Sign… Cancer....Leo cusp

If I were a color, I'd be… Green

Fave travel destination… Dallas, Texas (it’s where all my friends from college are at)

LA spot that inspires or relaxes me… The Universal City overlook on Mulholland 

The best advice I ever got… Always be listening
