Please introduce yourself. What do you do? Why? What do you want people to know about you?
I am an actor and musician. I have been in the industry since I was 5. I absolutely love acting. The thrill of being on set and playing someone else is amazing. I want people to know I’m genuine and I am looking to be a positive role model to others
What qualities make you different and unique from everyone else in the industry?
I am different because I have inner strength. I was bullied pretty badly for 4 years. Told I wouldn’t ever make it. Told to quit. I let that toxicity affect me for 4 years and then I said no way. I am not going to let others define me or define my future. I am the creator of my dreams and the writer of my script.
Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
I think I realized at 3 I wanted to perform. When I was younger I would dress in costumes every day. Even in 6th grade, I would dress as an elf the entire month is December and bring treats to people. I think that was when I realized my dream. But just this month I was sitting in my room and I was like wow, I’m actually doing what I dreamed of and then it hit me I have a good path ahead.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
Biggest challenges has been allowing the haters to get to me. Allowing others to direct my path. I’ve also struggled with my own anxiety so that has been hard at times to get out of my own head and push through.
If you had to pick the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could take your career (or business) to the next level…who would those 3 people be?
I want to meet Robert Downey Jr because he is for one an amazing actor but two he has been down and he pushed his way back to the top and to me that is inspiring. I’d also like to meet William Zabra from Cobra Kai because I hear it at least once a week that I look like him from The Karate Kid movie in the 80s. Finally I’d like to meet a Disney channel executive that believes in me and saw my vision and saw me on top of their lineup.
