Personal Quote:

I grew up as a farm boy in Fresno, which is an agricultural town plunked in the middle of California--thousands of miles mentally from Hollywood. I'd watch the Academy Awards and it was such a magical event. I really wanted to be part of that world, like everyone does.


Attended California State University, Fresno.
