"BE THE BEST YOU CAN BE. YOU ARE THE BEST!"
When did you start to get interested in acting and modeling?
I first got interested in modeling more recently, about a year and half ago. I’ve been in the entertainment industry as an actor for about 6 years. I feel like I definitely use my acting background in my modeling.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?
Be the best you can be. You are the best!
Which is the part you enjoy the most about acting and modeling?
I enjoy the whole process. When I’m on set, I love watching all the cameras and watching the crew setting up for a scene or shot. Even the wardrobe choices are interesting to me. So many pieces make the art what it is., including me, the actor and the model.
Most artists say that through their art they learn more about themselves, heal injuries… In which aspects has your journey helped you?
My art has helped me interact and meet so many people. Also has helped me with my dislike of large crowds.
What does your art mean to you?
My art means growth to me.
Who are your idols?
I actually don’t have any idols. I try to be the best version of myself. On a daily basis I only compare myself against myself.
If you didn’t like acting and modeling, what would you like to do?
I love science so I’m probably going to pursue science in school and college. I would possibly a surgeon. When I was younger, I wanted to be an entomologist. Who knows?
Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
I’m not sure. I would think that social media creates more opportunities. But, I’m only 12, so what do I know?
What would your idyllic life as an artist be like?
My idyllic life would include being a series regular on a TV show and maybe earning an Emmy or an Oscar. I think it’s about recognition for doing a job well done, and about loving your work. I also hope to be successful in my modeling. Maybe a cover or 2 would be awesome!
Which are your upcoming projects?
I audition for commercial, Voice-Over, TV & Film and I take acting classes on a regular basis. So, hopefully I’ll book something soon. Modeling wise, I just had new shots taken last week and I do photoshoots about 1 a month to keep my modeling photos strong.
