I was born a professional athlete, or so I thought, because 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 to go to 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 so being the only family member to go to college was the best way to exert my independence.
My parents were pretty laid back with me because I always had a good head on my shoulders. After graduating from college with a B.A. 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 in 2014, I plan on joining the union, and I plan on landing more television roles.
