Q:  What kind of day job do you have and why does it make you want to do something else?

 

A: I work at the office of a high-end catering company on the Upper East Side. It helps keep me disciplined but makes me want to use all that time and energy towards my own goals.

 

Q:  What makes you interested in acting?

 

A: It’s a chance to inhabit another body and mind. Sometimes that process helps me deal with my own inner turmoil. Sometimes it just makes me laugh. But I always feel that I learn something from it.

 

Q:  How did you get cast in Shit White Guys Say to Black Girls?

 

A: I believe that was through a Craigslist post. I’m pretty adventurous with my choices.

 

Q:  What is the strangest pick up line you’ve ever heard anyone say to anyone?

 

A: How much to f*#@ your wife?

 

Q:  Why do you think so many people want to be actors?

A: It’s an escape from reality. It’s intoxicating and addicting.

 

Q:  What kind of roles do you see yourself in?

 

A: I most often play stoners, hipsters, slackers, DJs and the like. I’m fine with that 😛

 

Q:  What’s the main difference between an artist and an egoist?

 

The difference is I know what an artist is but I had to Google “egoist.” All artists need an ego to survive in their industry.

 

Q:  What do you like about New York?

 

A: The opportunities for work, events and personal connections.

 

 

Q:  What don’t you like about it?

 

A: The relentless pace and bleak atmosphere.

 

Q: What is your strangest work story?

 

A: Probably receiving personal hate mail and death threats because of a viral video!
