“At 26, I finally know: [acting] gave me the control in being seen, for the people I wanted to could see the pain, the joy, and everything in between. And if it was ever too much, I could wink and say, ‘that was just the character’.”

“The thing I’m most proud of is that I really feel like I’m starting the life that I’ve wanted to live. I just bought a home, and Adrie and I are planning our lives together. I want more than anything to be a father. I think that’s the role I was born to play.”

“I experienced some big losses when I was very young. [Art] was the first place where I found a congregation; it was the first communion I held with people. When we got together, I felt like a part of something bigger, instead of a unique person who felt alone.”

“The people who have had the most impact on me spiritually are the people that I’ve lost; they haunt me in everything I do.”
