“My biggest piece of advice to anyone just starting out, or to anyone who feels like they are taking a wrong turn along the way, is this: find something you want to do and learn how to do it really well.

Whatever it is, when you are doing it, it makes you feel amazing and most yourself. Throw yourself into it. Challenge yourself to be the best you can be. We can’t all be famous actors. But, if you can find something you love and if that something will also pay the bills, you will be on your way to your own personal paradise.”
