I like acting, I like being lost in the creative process. I think wherever that takes me. I'm interested in all kinds of art. I draw and paint and don't know how to play the banjo, but I do play the banjo. I want to get back to it. It just depends on who approaches me, or who I approach. I want to express sincerity in whatever form.
