I wanted to become an actor after performing in my first show, The Wizard of Oz… I ended up playing the lion and fell in love with acting.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME AN ACTOR?
I wanted to become an actor after performing in my first show, The Wizard of Oz. We were required to be in this production, as it was the 4th grade musical. I had never been interested in acting before this show. I ended up playing the lion and fell in love with acting.

WHO’S YOUR INSPIRATION?
My Grandpa is my inspiration. He is 85 and is still extremely hardworking. He even went waterskiing with about a year ago. He is also kind and he is a role model to me.

WHATS AN INTERESTING FACT OR QUALITY ABOUT YOURSELF?
I can hold a headstand for a very long time and I can sometimes spin on my head.
