Milestones

My road in life has been direct.
Went to university to please his parents.
Got an arts-commerce degree, but focused on theater the whole time he was there.
Improvisation taught him "don't think-just do things."
Believes that instinctively, you know what you want to do, but it takes time to "own" it and work towards it.
Finished university and knew he wanted to be an actor, but he spent a year being indecisive before he actualized his dream, went to acting school.
In acting school, he tried very hard to get things right, do things well.
Finally, a teacher told him, "it's boring to be 'good'-said it's okay to be brilliant or terrible, as long as you're taking a risk.
Says the only way that you can have a remarkable life is by making remarkable choices, not safe choices.
