Hollywood and life of the actor is still plagued with many misperceptions, myths and mysteries. For every person who thinks it’s an eventual rags-to-riches story for everyone who works hard; there’s another person who thinks it’s a life of fame and fortune. For women, minorities and the poor especially, the industry has yet to change much over a century to allow access for everyone deserving of a chance to share their truth in the most influential medium in the world.
Behind every brand is a struggle. Behind every smiling eager artist lies a humanity propped-up by the strongest sense of resolve that can found in any human being. Allow me to use my day-to-day life as a vehicle to show you the worlds I want you to see, both inside me and in Los Angeles. This is my truth.

Introducing you to my dreams, strengths and my background, I talk about my love for voiceover in cartoons and games and how I’m readying myself for registering as a background extra for the first time. All while introducing you to a great acting school in Santa Monica.
My commitment to register as an extra with a background agency by pulling an all nighter on the sidewalk takes a dark turn as I struggle to use what little I have to make it while facing circumstances that threaten to make it a dangerous trip.
I reflect on my ultimate dream as an adventurer and my most personal struggle affording the training to compete in the action side of the industry. But when a chain of events lead to me the ultimate exciting incentive, I am challenged with figuring out something that has frustrated me for years.
