Who has inspired you in your life and why?
Jim Carrey was always an inspiration to me ever since I was a kid. I’d always imitate him and watched his movies on the daily. I feel like he’s the reason why I enjoy doing comedies.
What is your greatest achievement so far?
I’ve won awards at major film festivals. The latest one was held at the cinerama dome in 2009 at the Harvard Westlake Film Festival. Tom Hanks was the host of the event, he saw my short film “Hand the Ball”, and personally congratulated me with a Lizzie Award for best acting followed by a scholarship to NY film school.
