Growing up, I've always loved performing. I know it's the cliche that someone who was a little shy had to use performing to get attention, but it's my story. (Though like Harrison Ford, I also tell people that I fell into acting because of "Failure in every other subject.")
I started acting back in high school, including our own production of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It was so cool to emulate one of my heroes, Jim Carrey (it doesn't hurt that I look just like him.)
Other acting heroes include DeNiro, Nicholson, and Michael Keaton.
It's hard to say how I did this, but I also developed a knack for doing voices. On one short, I did a French accent so convincingly, my director was surprised when he found out I DON'T have a French accent.
