If I could make a living doing what I love most, I would be an actor. Acting for me represents creativity and imagination in its purest form. There is no way around it, you must be totally immersed in the moment to feel things you may have never felt before, to instinctually feel those feelings, replicate them, mimic them, whatever you have to do to display your artistry with perfection on screen. It’s blocking out the world, the audience, and only allowing what is currently “real” occur in your mind, a bridge to a different world.

Being an actor, I would use my celebrity to positively influence the world. Seeing as actors are in the limelight constantly, they have the opportunity to affect and infect society either positively or negatively. I would use my status to start movements, share my ideas on what I believe the future of our country should go in, how we need to allow our youth to lead more proactively, and foster a culture of youthful entrepreneurship that can turn this economy and country around and allow us to keep climbing.

The goals I would set for myself would be the following (by years end):

-Continue to bodybuild and use my health and fitness as an advantage. Win a show, do a photoshoot, get a sponsor, and use these opportunities to get noticed.

-Get into at least 10 short films and or commercials by the end of the year.

-Leverage myself on Youtube

-Get an Agent
