Personal Quote:

I was dirt-poor. I could barely hold down a job. Eventually, though, I started getting small parts on shows like Smallville (2001), Supernatural (2005)... and lots of really bad sci-fi movies. I was running around the woods in wolf contacts, covered in fake blood made out of pancake syrup, roaring. See more »
