I've always liked being the first one on the dance floor.
I am a self-contained “party of one;” no matter where I am, who I’m with, or even if I’m by myself, I am constantly enjoying life.
Maybe it’s the fact that I’m plagued by the idea that I am but a small one of millions floating on a rock in space or maybe it’s the unrelenting passage of time but I know life is short and that I shouldn’t waste it being held back by my inhibitions, or anyone else’s. This mindset has allowed me to approach life with a, markedly dark, sense of humor and an open mind.
As hard as I like to play, the pursuit of knowledge has always been a driving force for me. I want to be saturated not only with art, but with people’s energy. My mind is myriad of the things I’ve read and the people I’ve met. I’ve always been somebody who likes knowing everybody.
I feel things at astronomical levels, and have an innate ability to put myself into another's shoes. I appear cool and collected on the outside, but am internally constantly analyzing the people and situations around me.
It’s this human experience that drove me to acting. The wearing of another’s human emotions and story has always been intoxicating to me. Normalcy and restraint have never been familiar or comfortable to me. I want my life to be a great, big adventure or nothing at all.
