The odd thing is, I don't consider what I do work, because it's what I love. But it is also an enormous amount of pressure, and you have to work an enormous amount of hours.
One of the first things I did was interview the President of the United States. Some people work their whole lives and can't interview someone of that stature.
So most of my acting experience came in college when I was living away from them. I acted in various independent films, and I got some commercial work and stuff like that.
I know that producing will ultimately mean more longevity in the business, so when I'm tired of everything else and want to be behind the cameras, I know that I can produce.
