Where did your inspiration to be apart of the entertainment industry come from?
Its interesting because for me, there was never one moment when I saw a movie and said, "That's it! That's what I want to do with my life!" For me it was a more natural transition. I've always been drawn to performing in front of people and even though I took theater classes in high school, I never considered it to be my profession. Until my oldest sister, Michelle, pushed me into some modeling and acting classes. From there I actually felt like I had a chance, so I went to a big convention in LA and was found by my manager, Patricia Brown, before I even checked into the hotel. So for my senior year of high school I was flying, or driving, from Sacramento to LA for auditions, a debt that I still owe to my parents. So again, it was only natural that once I graduated for me to move to LA and try my hand at acting at least for a little while. That was 4 years ago. But now that I'm in the industry some of my idols that inspire me to follow in their paths would be Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Reynolds, Leonardo DiCaprio, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and the great Bruce Lee.
