  1. Tell us how you got started in the industry.

I got started in the industry as a young boy. I have always love to entertain people. 

  • What is your favorite memory from being on the show “Schooled”?

One of my favorite memories of being on “Schooled” is the friendships that I have made. I still stay in contact with a few of the cast and crew. My other favorite memory is just being on set and having a lot of fun doing the job. I miss being on the set. 

  • Your film “Catch the Bullet” was much different than your comedic role on “Schooled”. How do you prepare for dramatic roles? Is the preparation different?

I prepared for “Catch the Bullet” as I would prepare for any role. I read through the script, and I research the time era and what the character is about.

  • Which type of role do you prefer- comedic or dramatic and why?

That is a really hard question. I actually love all the different types of acting. It is completely fun to dive into any role and make the role mine. 

  • What is your process for choosing a role?

The process I go through is, first I read through the script. Then I decide if this is a character, I can be proud of. 

  • You have a new film coming out entitled “Gacy”. What can you tell us about this film and your role in it?

Yes, I can definitely share about the movie. I am actually very excited about it. The movie is loosely based on John Wayne Gacy’s life. The best way to describe the movie is when the devil moves next door. I play a teenager who starts to see strange things happening across the street and he starts to wonder what is going on and gets himself caught in the wrath of Gacy. 

  • On your Instagram, you go to Disneyland a lot! What is your favorite thing about Disneyland?

Oh my gosh…What is there not to LOVE about Disneyland. My family and I love going there. As you enter Disney and go under the bridge where the train is above you have a sense of leaving the outside world and all your troubles and entering into a “MAGICAL” place. I have grown up going to Disneyland for as long as I remember. My favorite part of Disneyland is Star Wars land. It is not a secret that I also am a Star Wars Nerd. 

  • What is one thing people would be surprised to know about you?

The one thing that people would be surprised to know about me is that I am a huge dog lover. I love dogs. Especially little puppies. They melt my heart. 

  • What other upcoming projects do you have?

I do have an upcoming project called “My Father’s Fiancé”. We will be done filming in a couple of weeks and the movie should be released sometime this summer.
