Tell us a little about yourself, where your from, grew up, what H.S./College you attended etc.
— Grew up in Suffolk, VA. I attended Nansemond River High School. Was cool, kinda boring. Attended the Governor’s School for the Arts for Instrumental Music and then Dance. Loved that. Just studied at the Atlantic Acting School Evening Conservatory. I’m an alumnus now.
What inspired you to be an artist/entertainer? Early experiences worth sharing?
— Always knew I was meant to be one. Grandma would call me “little Jim Carrey.” I guess I was doing something right.
Talk about a time where you have faced adversity/conflict and have triumphed.
— Came down with shingles when I was 18 after not being able to afford heat for the cold winter in Nashville, TN. Struggled to pay the rent. Came down with terrible shin splints and had to bike 4 miles to get to the PT back and forth. It’s been a hustle and a grind, but those moments of struggle are the reasons why I’m so ambitious.
What do you believe sets you apart from other artists/entertainers?
— My drive to succeed. It’s all about doing the work and I refuse to give up.
Do you have other interests or hobbies?
— I enjoy making music and beats with my Alesis V25 keyboard. I’m an amateur, but it’s a lot of fun.
Any projects you have out or currently working on?
— Currently working in an awesome Off-Broadway play, Sleep F$@cking: Revision, and a feature film, Alpha Rift.
Where would you like to see yourself in 5 years?
— Being my hero.
What advice can you give to aspiring artists/entertainers?
— JUST DO IT.
How can we follow along in your journey? Social media?
