Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I really want to change the world, and I want people to know who did it!
Can you share the most interesting story that happened to you since you started doing this?
I’ve meet all kinds of actors, but the most interesting story is when I went to go see the musical Hamilton, I got to meet the Actors!
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them to thrive and not “burn out”?
Just keep going, don’t do it for the attention, do it for your self.
None of us are able to achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?
My grandma, she never gave up on my dreams, even the car ones. I’d tell her I’d wanted to be in the CIA and she go buy all these spy gadget toys. Then the next day I would change my mind then she go buy whatever I was interested in that day.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I use my acting to bring awareness to things like teen dating violence, bullying, rape, and human trafficking. I take what I do very seriously.
Do you have a favorite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
My favorite quote is by Gandhi, “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” I use it in everyday life. Revenge isn’t the right path, let your enemies gaze at your success.
