I may be as ambitious as any other actor out there, but I’m also a wild, free-spirited and spunky fireball with a heart born from stories of adventurous do-gooders triumphing over evil. I’m a real-life adventurer who wants to see how far he can push himself until he realizes the limits of his own mortality: risks, danger, survival, exploring the ends of the earth… experiencing the greatest thrills.
Secondly, I’m a justice-driven activist who’ll never forget what he stands for in struggle or success namely the protection of diversity in all its forms and the fight for socio-economic justice.
In time, I believe the name Courage will be as familiar as the person who embodies the spirit of that name. I will make mistakes. Big ones. I will rock the boat. A lot. I’m surely destined to be the elephant in the crowded room that is establishment Hollywood, for that is what I’ve always done best.
It’s always been my hope to bring a spirit of child-like joy and wonderment to humanity that could also open the eyes of people to a profoundly precious world worth protecting and a human truth that actors are especially capable of promoting with their platform. This journey of mine is for every young American Indian or Chicano who had their heart broken by circumstances they did not deserve. I’m fighting for all of us.
To be an actor is to take on a greater responsibility than your brand. It’s to be a mover and shaker of the human spirit. Hollywood better be ready, because I’m the definition of trouble:
Actor. Activist. Adventurer. A Triple-A threat to the “C”. COURAGE. That’s me.
“All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did” – T.E. Lawrence
