Before I graduated college, I did a pretty wide range of things… Worked at my uncle’s screen printing business, helped a photographer in NYC, did a summer as a camp counselor in training, bussed tables at a catering hall, worked as a bank teller, picked up a few shifts as a custodian at an NYC public school, spent summers in retail at Foot Locker and FootAction.
No Doubt – Tragic Kingdom. My sister used it to bribe me to try some food I wasn’t otherwise interested in.
Something people would be surprised to learn about me?
I’m a voice actor!
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Star Trek. I prefer hard sci fi over sci fi fantasy.
Dogs or Cats?
Dogs, definitely dogs, but cats have grown on me. I can’t help but see the lion in every cat.
