How Has COVID 19 Affected you ?
COVID 19 has made me much more aware of the elderly people in my life as we try to take precautions to keep them safe from harm.
Who are your influences?
I am influenced by great comedians like Bernie Mac, Chris Rock George Carlin and amazing actors like Joaquin Phoenix and Samuel L Jackson.

In my spare time I play guitar and a few other instruments, do a lot of cooking, and love hanging out at the beach.
What is your biggest/weirdest fear?
I don’t have many fears, but I once saw a real life ostrich and kind of instinctively yelled even though it was behind a gate.
What would be your super power?
What’s to say I don’t have a super power already? *Tilts glasses* no really I would want laser vision because then I would have perfect bacon in a blink of an eye.
What was the process of obtaining your level of success like for you and what steps did you take that were necessary for the growth and maturity of your brand ?
I never let people tell me what I want is impossible or unreasonable, if I’m willing to work hard enough for it. Getting rid of that unhelpful habit has helped me more than anything.

My advice for any up and coming entertainer is easy 1: Always be kind to yourself, 2: have fun, and 3: be patient but persistent.

I care deeply about making sure that everyone gets equal representation not just Hollywood and the entertainment industry but in all workplaces.
