OPEN TO ALL ALUMNI , PARENTS, AND FRIENDS


Briefly describe the highlights of your career path since graduation.


There have been many but none would be bigger than a small indie film I did six years ago called Between. It wasn’t very good and neither was I, but it is where I met my girl- friend and future mother of my son.


Are there any special challenges that you have had to overcome in building your career?


Picture yourself going on three to five job interviews a week for thirteen years and being hired part-time three to four times a year over that period of time. Welcome to the glamorous life of an actor!


What do you enjoy most/least about acting? Getting the job/not getting the job. (lol)


Please describe your greatest career dis- appointment and success and what you learned from each.


Too many disappointments to recall one specific time. I don’t think you learn any- thing from your successes in this business. What you do learn is perserverance.


What was the most amusing/embarrassing experience in your career?


Any time you are handed nude color bikini bottoms for a love scene. My motto is… if the other actor is okay with it go naked. At least you can’t be made fun of if you’re naked because that would be construed as sexual harassment. Wear those nude bikini bottoms and you are fair game for razzing.


What are your long-range career aspirations?


I just want to continue being able to make a living doing the one thing I love. If I never have to go back to a secondary job to support myself while looking for acting work, I will be very happy.


What advice would you give to aspiring actors?


You are who you are. You look the way you look. You sound the way you sound. If you can truly recognize that about yourself, you will be confident. Confidence is key. I promise you that it is more important on soooo many levels than talent. Of course you need to hone your craft/talent.
