When you were 17, what did you want to be?
Growing up, it was always a lawyer, doctor, that type of thing. Prior to high school, I had no idea about theater, no one in my family is artistic. When I did the first show with Harmony Players, Grease, that was my first intro to theater and that's when the bug bit, I would say. But I didn't think I was going to do it as a career, even though I did it all through high school and my first job was performing for Nickelodeon at Great America (a local amusement park).
