Tell me a little about yourself.
I am a CREATIVE.
When did you decide that you wanted to become an actor?
While watching the musical Big River at New York State Theatre Institute, I had the vision of being an actor on that stage. I had only acted in one performance of anything prior to this epiphany. Months later, I was part of their program and performed in their whole season.
Who are your biggest influences?
Father Time and The Grim Reaper.
What is your strength as an actor?
I think my superpower, as well as my kryptonite, is the fact that I am an empath.
How difficult is it to establish yourself in the film industry?
I believe with most things it’s a matter of perspective, and essentially what one deems “established”.
What’s your dream, your ultimate goal? Do you feel like you’re on the path to this goal, or do you feel as if you already achieved that dream?
Ultimately I would love to have my experiences continually inspiring and supporting generations of future dreamers. I feel I’m on the path.
What is your message to all your fans?
As we think, so shall we be. Excelsior.
