So I said I’m an actor…

I was in a Pampers commercial when I was a toddler.  My Mom was against it, but my Pops approved.  He was always indulging me an my sis.  He was a great supporter of anything we wanted to do.  Not that I was old enough to make that decision for myself, but my Pops had connections to the “screen and TV” world.  A friend of his saw me at some family function and decided I was perfect for this commercial he was involved with…  Bam!, a star was born.  Alright, so it took more time than that.  But I started getting offers for bit parts in kids movies. as an extra in some low budget films, even a minuscule walk on in a major motion picture.  By the time I was able to make a decision, I was hooked, line and sinker!  Loved the attention.  Loved the bustle.  Loved that bright lights and stage gear.  Such a rush!  Like a junkie, I was addicted!  Went to NYU for acting and drama.  That lasted two years.  Hey, I got some good shit out of it.  But I was doing fine on my own.  So, WTF.  Why be in a classroom learning to act when I was getting calls to actually ACT!
