I want to thank you for checking out what I'm all about. As I write this, I feel compelled to answer the obvious question that likely led you to this page. "Who are you and what do you do?" It's a question that everyone asks, especially in Los Angeles. I suppose it is an important question, but not as important as "Why?"
I do a lot of things. I act. I sing. I play instruments. I build businesses.
I do it all because I love it.
I graduated college in the middle of a recession. Like most people, I immediately began looking for a job. I couldn't find one. So I created one. For a couple years, I built my own business and eventually hired out all of my responsibilities. The money was good. I had all the time in the world and I remember sitting on my bed thinking, "Now what?" As if the next chapter wouldn't come. Well, it did come. I got a call to go on tour as a rock and roll musician. I toured the country and had a blast only to come back and find myself sitting on my bed again asking, "Now what?"
By this time, I had faith that more adventures awaited. However, this time they didn't just come. I had to go out and get them.
Considering I was in Hollywood, I considered that I ought to give acting a go. After all, it worked out for my cousin, Kyle. He got me into some amazing acting classes and eventually I secured an agent and manager and began an acting career.
I've had ups and downs in every aspect of my life. Things aren't always peachy. There's a lot of rejection in acting, the music industry, and in business. Worse than rejection is loss. The loss of a job...or a loved one. It's times like these I try to remind myself how good I've got it. I'm grateful, from the bottom of my heart, that you even cared enough to read through this letter. By now I'm just rambling on and feeling a little guilty...for bragging... for being so lucky. But the truth is, it isn't luck. It's choices. I've chosen love... most of the time. I urge you to do the same.
Love yourself and love one another. That seems to work.
