Personal Quotes (5)

Singing is what got me into everything and made me fall in love with this industry
Both singing and acting are so rewarding that I couldn't pick between the two.
I'm definitely a religious and spiritual person, however, as sad as it is, I don't have the time to be a practicing Jew these days. Frankly, after going to Hebrew school six days a week for many years, I decided not to go to temple as much as I got older. But, I love spending time with my Jewish friends in LA. On any High Holiday, I really try and actually take a break from work and spend time with my family... I love my religion. I was never Orthodox or raised that way. In fact, my mother is Catholic, so there's a little difference there. The bloodline is passed down through the mother, but I was bar mitzvahed and raised Jewish. I believe in religion wholeheartedly. Ironic as it is and maybe sad as it is, I don't have time to practice. But, I'm okay with that these days because I know what I believe in, and I don't think that it really offends anybody. It's a different time these days than when my parents, and especially my grandparents, were around.
Success comes when preparation meets opportunity. Which to me always means that there's gonna be a chance. Everybody's gonna get a chance. Some more than others, but if you're prepared for that one chance, then this could be yours. So do what you love, work hard of it, become the best at it, and when that chance comes- you're hopefully gonna get it. Practice what you love.
Success comes when preparation meets opportunity. To me that means: Look, people are going to get different amounts of opportunities. Some people get a lot of opportunities, some people only get one or two in life, but everybody's gonna get some. And if you're the most prepared- you train, you practice, you hone your craft. Whatever that is- cooking, business, singing. When that opportunity comes, you're going to have the best shot of seizing it and succeeding and then getting another one. So that's why, to this day, I'm still in acting classes, I still practice singing. I want to get better everyday, I don't want to get worse, and I think musically, at least this album kind of speaks for itself, I've become much a better singer. Even over the past couple of years- because I've just honed my craft more and more and every time I play another show, I get that much better. So hell yeah keep training guys.
