A small taste of what’s to come…

 Here’s our Q and A session with Timothy!

 Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A. Becoming another character is not about getting into that characters head, but rather letting him get into yours! To become another person you must immerse yourself in his world, understand how he thinks, but more important, why he thinks that. To do that research before taking on a role is critical. Whether it be delving into a book, or history, or, if possible, meeting the person to understanding who they are. Once you have grasp of the character you merge your thoughts with his and you begin to “character think”, the person you have become starts to develop his own thoughts. Once the mind has merged the body will follow and you will have now become the role. When on set, the wardrobe usually helps complete the transformation. Which allows the character to flow through the lines and not the acting saying the lines. Sometimes, it is necessary to get in character before camera rolls to have an easy transition. I will many times, ad lib lines to myself as the character to clinch the roll right before going on set.

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. Cary Grant and Jackie Chan are two of my favorite actors. Cary had incredible versatility, able to go from a goofy ball to a the suave and debonair heart throb very easily. Jackie Chan, was\is, simply brilliant. Not only was he a great martial artist, he developed his own style of entertainment which has been unmatched since.

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character? 

A. I don’t necessarily have  dream roll. I want to help create new things that no one has seen before and tell a good story! A story that uplifts, or motivates, or challenges people to be better.

Tim2

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. I prefer to play the hero. Being the Villain can be fun but with so much negativity in the world I love to play the person people would look up to!

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. My first dream was to play professional soccer! At 17 I toured Italy with a US team and in April 2011 I blew my knee out which destroyed my chances.

Tim1

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. On film I haven’t had a hard roll but in high school I had the lead in the senior play and becoming a smooth, cool character was hard for me since I was the awkward dork in high school.

Q. On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. Most fun roll was when I actually played a villain in  short student film. First fight I choreographed so that made it special. It had an extended woods chase scene with an epic ending battle.

A sample of Timothy’s work-

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I had taken 4 years of drama in High School but no formal film training.

Tim5

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Decide!! If you want to do something do it 100%! Don’t “give it try” or “see what happens”; decide whether or not you want to be an actor and then give it everything you have!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

I would be doing entrepreneurial work!

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB…Yi Liu Christina

christina1

CROWLEY’S TOMB NEWS & CASTING:

The extremely talented actress Yi Liu Christina has been selected as the perfect actress to bring to life the ever so dangerous bounty hunter “Fudeng Dragon”.  Wanted Dead or Alive and the Dragon prefers dead and has a taste for killing the impossible Ghost of the Cemetery Boys. Don’t look now but she is right behind you in the ultimate game of Cat & Mouse…

christina2

Q. It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles.

A. I like to live in my role, I like to dig into as much details of the background of the character as possible, so that I can become the character herself. My first real character was a drug-addicting teen in a play performed in my college, I spent weeks watching clips of famous actors depicting drug-addicting characters while at the same time gradually buried myself into the mood of the girl who lost hope of the world and blaming it on her divorced parents. When I first applied the role, the director didn’t trust me being able to do this role, but weeks later, I gave him a show that exceeded the girl he initially chose for the role. Funny thing is, after the show, lots of students in my college asked me if I have really been addicted to drug before, because it looked too real that it actually scared them 😛

christina6

Q. Who is your favorite actor and why?

A. I have many favorite actors, my first inspiration is Donny Yan. He gave me the inspiration to become a martial artist. But acting wise, my favorite is definitely Johnny Depp. I watched many Tim Burton movies during the years I grew up in China and loved all the characters Johnny Depp played while had no idea that it was the same actor until many years later (Due to the lack of internet when I was young, had no way to look up the cast). That to me is a real success as an actor: Not being limited to a certain type of roles, but has the ability to become anyone and deceiving the audiences’ eyes at the same time.

christina4

Q. What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A. My dream role has always been an extremely twisted character, a character that has exact opposite personalities in one body, one super innocent and sweet, the other extremely evil, all under the disguise of a nice girl. I have always been discovering different sides of myself in my journey of self-exploring, and I give all my personalities a soil to develop, so that when the opportunity comes, I can bring out the extremely contradictory personalities in a way of harmony.

christina3

Q. Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A. Definitely villain! The beauty of being an actor to me, is to be able to live so many lives and looking at the world in different eyes, while other people only have one chance. Playing villain is so much fun to me because I get to let out a totally different me and be as creative as I can with it. To me, hero has its limits, a hero can only be so “hero”, but a villain has no limits, it can be as bad as you can imagine!

Christina5

Q. Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A. Zootopia is my favorite Disney movie in the recent 5 years. I have experienced almost all the difficulties Judy went through when she came to Zootopia to realize her dream. I came to America to pursue my master’s degree without knowing anyone in this country. Have been looked down upon because of my size, been taken as “exotic cute”, neighbor problems, been made fun of because of accent… You name a few. And by the end of the day, still need to look cheered up when calling the family. All those difficult times have become my fuel and when look back, they have all become heartwarming memories thanks to all the friends I made on the journey. And, I met my foxy Nick at Kung Fu temple.

Q. What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A. I have not played many roles yet, but I would say the hardest role I have played was a small role when I was in a group participating the 48 hour film project. The whole 48-hour production is already super stressful, and there was no any information given about my character, I had to come up with a background setting for the role on the fly so that I can make the role a real person. I barely had any lines, but I was in shot a lot, so I had to be acting the whole time without instruction of what I was supposed to do. It was also my first time acting in front of camera, since my most experience before was stage play, I had to remind myself the whole time to not bring the stage acting style into the camera. But after all, it was a very precious learning experience.

Q. On the flip side, what was the the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A. The most fun role in film I have ever played so far was one of the villains among a group of robbers. I was the most badass fighter among all the bad guys in that film, but the most fun part was actually not the fighting part, but the part when I got killed. I had a lot fun portraying a death from trachea been broken, all the chokings, struggles, and eventually a painful death gave me a chance to fully utilize not only my acting skill but also my medical knowledge

Q. Tell us about where you got your training?

A. I didn’t have formal training in acting, just joined the acting club in college and was trained by the professor in charge of the club. But life actually gave me more training on acting more than anything. As of martial arts training, I had three years in Taekwondo when I was in China, achieved black belt. Picked up Kung fu again after I moved to Orlando.

Q. What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A. Me myself is still an aspiring actor, still learning and growing, still have a long way to go. I just want to encourage all my fellow mates, don’t give up, no matter how many times you got rejected at audition, just keep on trying, and keep on sharpening yourself on the go!

Q. If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A. I am actually a research engineer as of my full time job. I have to be able to feed myself before I can pursue my passion 😛 I am also an artist on the side, learned painting for more than 10 years. I love to branch into different professions and challenge my creativity.

Crowley’s Tomb: The Movie — Coming to a theater October 2017

A Moment With Crowley’s Tomb… Justin Larsche

Justin14

CROWLEY’S TOMB NEWS & CASTING UPDATES:
I am extremely proud to announce that actor Justin Larsche has landed the lead role as the conflicted Cemetery Boy George St. Louie, better know as “Preacher”.  Justin will also play a slew of evil characters which I will not reveal at this time. There is no other actor I trust more!!  He truly is the “Blessed Hell Rider”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nWWpZDsN2Ao      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMpf-Syar8w

Justin L12

Q- It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A- Well since I’ve done more theatre then film I’ll start there. First I get my script read it all the way through. Then I really focus on learning my lines, I’ll find the character more in rehearsal. I read over a scene a few times so I understand what my character is talking about then record myself so I can listen to it at any chance I get throughout the day. Once the words are in my head I can go to rehearsal without trying to act while reading and really discover who I am trying to portray. Being a lover of music I figure who does this character listen to? After that I will listen to an artist or music style through all rehearsal and run time. From there I just feed off of the director, the cast and whatever feels natural to the character. The one film I’ve done I only had a week to prep and no lines in the script. Lucky the director was willing to let me try some improv which turned out pretty crazy seeing how I was playing a sick sadomasochistic Russian mobster. Villains are always easier to play but we will get to that later.

justin18.

Q- Who is your favorite actor and why?

A- No way, I could ever have one favorite actor! But here’s maybe my top three: Heath Ledger-not just cause he was the best joker ever!! And yes, that is my favorite of his performances. The things that Ledger could do from one movie to the next from being the best hero to the most evil villain just showed his amazing versatility. He went way too soon! I think he had a lot more to offer us in my opinion! Gary Oldman- because this man is a true chameleon! Fans will never see him do the same thing twice! I mean from Jim Gordon to the pimp in True Romance to Count Dracula I mean need I say more!? Leonardo DiCaprio-because the man is dedicated to his roles goes full into character we are talking about a man who split his had open in the middle of a scene and ran with it even deciding to wipe the blood on another character’s face! That’s just brave acting!!

Justin20.

Q- What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A- Dream role would be the Joker on the big screen. It’s a character very dear to me that I have portrayed many times but to do it officially on set would blow my mind! I would bring to it my own inspirations from all the material out there and I surely would put my own original flare and twists to it. After that I would go to town!

Justin L4.

Q- Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A-Hero or villain hummm, well a few years ago I’d say villain, villain, and villain again! But I find the hero to be more of a challenge honestly. I like a challenge but my God the villain certainly is fun to play!!! I think we shall call this a 50/50 heads or tails proposition.

Justin2.

Q- Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A- I’m a total superhero geek but if you saw my FACEBOOK page you would quickly figure it out!

Justin L8.

 Q- What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A- The hardest role I ever played was Justin Larsche’s real life. Acting is only hard if you let it. But if that’s not the answer you’re quite looking for then I’d say Larry from Patrick Marbers Closer. It was my first onstage production. It was 10 of 12 scenes and a few of those scenes were very emotionally driven!

Justin L11

QOn the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A- I’d have to say also Larry from Closer though it was an emotional rollercoaster. It was an experience like I’ve never had before and that’s hard to top!

Justin L6.

Q-Tell us about where you got your training?

A- I got my training from sitting on my ass watching tons of TV. Sound like a joke? It’s not!!! I didn’t realize I was acting my whole life through TV and movies. I study the great actors and their performances over and over wanting to do what they were doing. I also studied bad actors and I learned over time what not to do! I work very hard memorizing movie lines until it comes natural to me. I would also work on body movements and I would stare in the mirror for hours practicing facial expressions. Now I’m training by working, doing theater, character gigs and whatever gets me that much closer to doing what I love!

Justin L10.

Q- What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-Take every risk you can but make sure you have another way to make a living cause this is a very hard game to make money at!!

justin23.

Q-If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A- Well I’ve done pool construction for the past 15 years, soooooo not that!!!  I just want to be in the entertainment field if not an actor then a director, a performer, a promoter, a producer or anyone that can provide great entertainment to people!!

A Moment With Crowleys Tomb…Brandon Clark

Brandon Clark8.

CROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES: Today I am excited to announce that actor Brandon Clark has landed the role as badass Cemetery Boy Casey Lesnar better known as “Maverick”. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Brandon Clark2.

Q-  It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A-  For me it’s all about doing the preparation before arriving on the set. It’s about researching the script, books, magazines and anything else that has relevancy to the production. You learn particular choices the character makes and you dig deeper to find out why they made those choices. What was their motivation or goals for that particular choice or scene? It’s all about finding out where they have been. What their past was, how it truly affected them. What really fascinates me is figuring out what the characters immediate goal is all about and discovering what the ultimate goal is at the end. This is the research that I have done for every character I have ever performed whether it was on stage, or in front of the camera.  After research it’s all about developing your character. I think more importantly though you have to search inside yourself to see what you as an individual can bring to your character. I think that you learn from past experiences in life and you tap into your emotional state at that time. I think it’s very important to bring life experiences that are relevant to your character. However, transitioning to being on set can be the most difficult for some actors. It can be nerve racking and scary for many actors but again, this is where the research and development comes into play. By being prepared, now you have an arsenal of options to perform on camera and the one thing directors love the most is having multiple options on how to perform the character and bring him to life.

Brandon Clark3.

 Q- Who is your favorite actor and why?

A- My favorite actor is by far “Bryan Cranston”. I first loved watching him in “Malcolm in the Middle” but then when the show “Breaking Bad” aired I was in amazement of his acting skills. He has some of the most incredible emotional ranges and to be able to show them without hesitation on camera is truly a feat. He is by far one of the best actors in entertainment today.

Brandon Clark9.

Q- What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A- My dream role one day would be able to play a superhero on screen. I believe with what I have gone through in my life gives me an emotional depth and range where audiences can relate much more than just watching super heroes battle and fight. Sometimes Heroes don’t always wear capes.

Brandon Clark1.

Q- Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A- I will always prefer to play the Hero. It’s about their nobility, courage, and sacrifices they have to give which resonates with me. However playing a villain once or twice would be extremely fun.

Brandon Clark4.

Q- Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A- A fun fact is that I LOVE to go to Theme parks. I actually own many annual passes to the great parks in Florida such as Disney World, Universal and Busch Gardens and I like to go as often as I can. I feel free and it helps me escape and be a kid again.

Brandon Clark7.

Q- What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A- The hardest role that I’ve performed has to be when I was cast as Prospero in Shakespeare’s, The Tempest. Memorizing and portraying Thousands of lines of Shakespeare dialogue was definitely the biggest challenge I’ve ever had to face especially since it was when I was a bit younger and didn’t have the knowledge that I do now.

Brandon Clark10   

QOn the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A- My most fun role definitely has to be when I played Seal O’Neal in American Warships. That entire production was a blast from getting to meet Carl Weathers. It was the first time working on a green screen and also getting to kill aliens; it couldn’t have been much better.

Brandon Clark6.

Q-Tell us about where you got your training?

A- I trained at the University of North Carolina Wilmington where I received my B.A in Theater Arts while also doubling down with minors in Economics and Spanish. After graduating I also went and studied at the NC School of the Arts where I trained in stage combat from the Society of American Fight Directors.

Brandon Clark5.

Q- What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-My advice for aspiring actors is to create as many connections as possible!! Take any gig that comes your way even if it’s just background work and don’t stop pushing for your craft. This industry is relentless and you will learn quickly that you have to have very thick skin to succeed. You might get turned down hundreds of times in auditions but those are opportunities to improve, not times to get down on yourself.

Brandon Clark Maverick

Q- If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A-The profession I would choose is without a doubt to be a Personal Trainer. I’m actually already working towards that goal by taking online classes to get my certification but since I was young I’ve always had an affinity for fitness and it’s something that I will continue to do my entire life.

A Moment With Crowley’s Tomb… Taylor Crumbley

 

 

Taylor CrumbleyCROWLEY’S TOMB CASTING UPDATES:
I am thrilled to announce actress Taylor Crumbley has landed multiple roles such as the seductive Gothic Vampire “Raven”, Gothic Ghost Hooker, Evil Demon and one of the Cemetery Boys Girlfriends. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Q  –  It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A-   The key to any kind of good acting is really knowing the character in your head. It’s easy to assume a character is one dimensional like the mean preppy girl or evil stepmom, etc. But nobody in real life is that simple. You have to really understand every side of how your character feels and reacts to be able to really portray them well. If there isn’t a story behind them, create one. As for researching, look up characters you think are similar, ask the writer how they view the character, and if it’s based on a book READ IT. The more you know, the better your character will be. Once on set I know things can get pretty goofy behind scenes but if there’s something emotional or big coming up its best to stay in character even when the cameras aren’t rolling because it really puts you in their mindset. It’s almost like you’re not acting anymore, but you’ve become that person.

Taylor Crumbley2. Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why?

A-   I have many but one of my all time favorites is Charlize Theron. I admire her level of commitment so much. Most people know her for her lighter work like in the Huntsman movies but if you watch her in that and then in the movie Monster, it’s like she’s not even the same actress. You can’t even recognize her. She did tons of research and really committed her whole body to that role and there is no better way of acting than that.

Q-  What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A-   I would really love to star in a drama. I love showing emotion and getting really intense. Films that really show a persons life and real human emotions and situations are incredible to me and I’d love to be a part of something like that.

Taylor Crumbley7. Q-  Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A –  Ha! Ha!! As much as I love the thought of the audience rooting for me in a film, I love playing the villain. They just always seem much more complex and in all honesty are much more fun to play. 😈

Q-  Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of.

A-   When I was younger I actually dyed my hair brown because I never saw actresses with red hair. I thought I’d never get any work that way and since I’ve gone back natural I’ve gotten 10 times as many call backs. That actually really built my confidence and taught me never to doubt yourself.

Taylor Crumbley4. Q-  What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A-    I played a villain named insanity and I think that role was hardest because I had to become so emotionally unstable that I really seemed insane. She wasn’t just a mean villain, she blamed the hero for her deformities, and i felt that deep in the character she really yearned to be like the hero. So it was interesting to learn how to portray all those different things in such a short time. Plus it was my first time doing fights scenes and I had a lot of learning to do. Ha! Ha!

Q-  On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A-   Being a bloodsucker! I was a vampire named Valerie and that was fun because I think vampires are the perfect mix of evil and sexy. So you get to just be smug and awesome. We ended making our own fake blood which was interesting to say the least. And messy. Ha! Ha! Ha!

Q-  Tell us about where you got your training?

A-   Honestly I haven’t had much formal training besides my high school drama classes. I get most of my techniques from watching interviews of other actors and reading the articles on Backstage. I’ve been acting my whole life. I started out putting on plays for my neighbors (I have 8 siblings so it was easy to cast the shows 😝) and then just moved up from there. But there is always more to learn.

Taylor Crumbley5.
Q-  What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Dedicate yourself and don’t give up. You’re going to hear just as many “no”s as you are “yes”s. Maybe even more. But hard work does really pay off. The more people see your commitment, the more opportunities you’ll receive.

taylor crumbley6.
Q-  If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A-   I’m actually a business major so I’m hoping to one day run my own company. That is if I don’t become a movie star. Haha. I’ve just always been good at things like that and I’m pretty independent so I don’t see myself working for other people the rest of my life.

A MOMENT WITH CROWLEY’S TOMB…JIMMY MANFREDY

I am very, very excited to announce that actor Jimmy Manfredy has accepted such multiple roles as Detective Bloom, Evil Clown, and Druid Monk just to name a few. Film production begins summer of 2017.

Jimmy Manfredy1.

Today we finally caught up to the very busy actor & Sifu  Jimmy Manfredy…

Q- It seems fans always want to know what an actor’s process is when preparing for past, or present character roles. Take us through your process when researching, developing and transitioning on the set for your character roles?

A-  My process is fairly simple, I read everything written for my characters in the script and break down why this person would think the way they do and acts the way they do, all the way down to what their speech pattern might be.  Then I go out into the world to find similar things in everyday people and use that as building tools for the persona I need to portray.

Q-  Who is your favorite actor and why? 

A-   Robin Williams:  I’ve always loved his ability to bring joy to everyone by using his imagination.

Q-   What would your dream role be? What would you bring to the character?

A-    My dream role I’m a little to old for now, I always wanted to play Peter Parker AKA Spiderman…lol

Jimmy Manfredy3.

Q-    Do you prefer to play the villain or the hero? Why?

A-    I prefer the hero. I grew up rough and I’ve always wanted to help people no matter how bad the situation, so I like to project that kind of positivity. However I don’t mind villain roles because they always need to make the hero look like one…lol

Q-    Tell the fans about a fun fact that we might not be aware of. 

 A-    I am a Die hard “Power Ranger Fan” especially the original Green Ranger Tommy  played by Jason David Frank….lol

Q-    What was the hardest role you’ve ever played and why?

A-     I played the role of Sam Knight in a film called “Always Live Laugh Love”, that role was the hardest because my brother in the film was dying of cancer which hit close to home for me, my Father and Grandmother passed away in 2009 and 2010 from cancer, so it brought back a lot of painful memories.

Jimmy Manfredy5.

Q-     On the flip side, what was the most fun role you’ve ever played?

A-     My favorite role so far has to be my recent role in the film “Read Between The Lines” an action comedy where I play Jimmy an undercover DEA agent with a very anxious partner. It was a fun and playful role to play while also doing the fight/stunt coordination for. I loved working with everyone involved.

Jimmy Manfredy2.

Q-    Tell us about where you got your training?

A-    My first experience in acting was with my high school theatre arts class and clubs. I also received personal acting training from my good friend Thomas Altman production Manager for the Winter Haven, FL theatre and the many wonderful coaches there. Since I’ve been a life long martial artist I also tried my hand in stunt work and I absolutely loved it. I really enjoy having the ability  to use my Martial Arts skills to create amazing fight sequences to tell a physical story to go along with the dialogue. For me it was a dream com true. In addition I sought out the guidance and trained with my good friends, veteran Hollywood Directors, Actors, Stuntmen, Stunt/Fight Coordinators Art Camacho and John Kreng, both of these men have been a wealth of knowledge and great mentors..

Q-   What advice would you give to aspiring actors?

A-   Find as many like minded positive people to surround yourself with and seek out every possible source of information that will help you achieve your goals and never give up no matter what anyone says!

Jimmy Manfredy4.

Q-    If not an actor, what profession would you choose to occupy? Why?

A-    Well in my case, I already occupy my other loved profession, I own and am the chief instructor at Twisting Tiger Academy. It’s a Martial Arts school where I help positively shape young minds for a better future themselves.  I also teach men and women of all ages to defend themselves from would be attackers.

A Moment with Crowley’s Tomb…Alyssa Sheets

We are excited to announce that actress Alyssa Sheets has landed the Evil Nun role as “Sister Emilie”. Film production begins summer of 2017.

We’ve been chatting with Alyssa and learned a little bit about her:

Sheets1.png

Q. Not yet having seen the script, as an actor how do you prepare/research your role?

A. Well, what I try to do to prepare for the role is I try and get myself in shape so I can perform the best I can. Something else that helps me is the people I surround myself with. I try and surround myself with positive people that push me to do my best.  Watching the trailer for the movie helped a great deal as well, of course.

Q. Given what you know from the cast and crew posts about CT, what and/or who are you most interested in seeing in the film?

A. I would honestly have to say that I am pretty excited to see everyone! I’m feeling pretty pumped to see how it all turns out when the project is finished!

Q. Do you have any pets and what are their names?

A. I do! I have a chow/collie mix, his name is Bear. I also have a miniature Pomeranian named Daisy May! I bought her as a gift to myself for passing the drivers test a year and a half ago. (laughs)

Q. What was your favorite TV show growing up?

A. Oh my goodness, Rugrats all the way! (laughs)

Q. What’s your favorite thing to do on weekends?

A. On the weekends I LOVE going to church. It always makes me feel better after a long, or stressful week.

Q. Do you remember your first time in an airplane?

A. Lord, do I! (laughs) I have been afraid of heights for as long as I can remember; and I had the window seat. I remember my whole body shaking in fear! I was so happy when I got off the plane that I hugged the first pole I seen and said to myself, “Thank you God! I am now safe on the ground again!”

Q. Who was the most influential person in your life?

A. Well, aside from Jesus and my family. There has been a few people that have influenced me, and made a big difference in my life. Pastor Dan/Mercy, Jeff, Bianca, Wil, Yoann, Judeson, Kendrick, Anthony/Audry, Steve, and Manny . I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have them in my life. They have all made the biggest difference to me, and have really inspired me to want to do better.
