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!
