Networking does pay off, as my publicist Scott Eriksson had previously introduced me to Peter Gonzaga of Pacific Rim Video at an industry event in Hollywood. This led me to (months later) becoming a lifestyle entertainment celebrity correspondent. Little did I know being interviewed by Pacific Rim Video would lead me to becoming a part of the press company’s team on a consistent basis. And I’d say it’s more stressful being the interviewer than the interviewee!
I’ve gotten to do some pretty fun jobs already, including being on the red carpet alongside Vin Diesel, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, and Tyrese for the “Fast & Furious: Supercharged” attraction grand opening at Universal Studios Hollywood! I worked up a sweat trying to fight my way through the other correspondents, photographers, and press people to get the coverage we needed for the feature, and since everyone else is doing the same, it can get ugly. One woman in particular was quite short with my team as both parties were filming an “outro” at the same time, which really annoyed us as she seemingly did not regard anyone else but herself. But I will take all of this as a learning experience, and I hope that it will only make me more knowledgable in my career as an actor.
