Well, I always knew I eventually wanted to do a story based on events from my life. And I tried to pick one that I knew would connect to a lot of people. I also knew that telling the story would be very emotional for me, and it definitely was. I wanted people to know that its not always easy being gay. We have no choice in the matter, its who we are. And the hardest part of accepting yourself is having people around you who accept you. Especially your parents.
Wow. I really don't know where to start with this lol. I guess a lot of it was the casting process… finding someone to portray all these important people in my life back in high school and going back in time and recreating that life. Mainly, casting the guy to play me. And Cort King did and AMAZING JOB! He had my personality DEAD ON! It was quite uncanny.
Well the good thing about "Between Lines" is that most of the characters were already fleshed out because they were based on real life people. There were those who I had to change around or change who or what they were physically to make the story flow better, but all and all, they were all based on someone I knew. But for anything else, I generally look at what the overall story is going to be. Then based off that, I map out the Journey from point A – B, and then basically fill in key people who would progress the story. Again, I tend to base a lot of characters off of people I know or have met at some point. This makes writing them a lot easier. But I also pull a great deal from characters I've always imagined seeing on screen in my head and pull from that.

Well, school was really tough. I got teased a lot. And bullied a lot cause I was really small and skinny, and just generally a push over. But I'd have to say, a lot of the friends I acquired, and any chance I got to perform in any capacity, I dove head first.
"Caution: Cuddler. Also very busy, emotional and spontaneous – love with caution! Lol"
