I was born to be a professional athlete. I made my very first steps chasing a ball. Athletics was very important to me as a young child, and I excelled greatly. Sports represented a way for me to express myself, and I just enjoyed it so much.
As I got older, I realized that I wasn’t going to play sports professionally, and so I had to redirect my focus. I then opted for college, instead of joining the military like my 2 older brothers had done before me. Being the youngest of 4 brothers, I always felt like I had to create my own identity. Being the only family member to graduate from college was the perfect way to express my independence.
With a Bachelor of Arts in English/Journalism, I realized that I didn’t want to be a teacher, or even a writer for that matter. So again, I had to redirect my focus. I had to be completely honest with myself about what I really wanted to do...Three years ago my friend suggested acting as a course of study so I started doing some background work, but I soon quickly discovered that I had a gift as a performer. Gradually, I started booking small speaking roles and then things just took off.
Now, as I move forward into 2015, I plan on joining the union, and I plan on landing more television roles.
