Personal Quotes (5)

Don't try and do the right thing, because there is no right thing; there's just the right thing for you.
I've trained primarily in Meisner Technique, and I've done a little bit of Groundlings and Upright Citizens Brigade just to get my feet wet in the improv world because I think that's really important. But most of the teachers I've worked with, I've gotten, like, references through agents or managers, and they're sort of independent.
I sit in an infrared sauna everyday and microwave myself. It's really detoxifying.
I don't really go out and do too much like networking and Hollywood events kind of thing. But I do some writing, and I find it helps me as an actor in terms of giving yourself back the power and feeling a bit of strength in that respect.
I try and get out there and audition as much as possible.
