First ever job: 

My first acting job was in 2011 when I was 6 to play a Lemur boy in Will Farrell’s Funny Or Die on HBO. 


Parkour, video games, working out and studying dinosaurs

If you were to have your own movie about your life, who would play you?  

Finn Wolfhard because he’s a great actor, seems cool and so many people say we look alike. Older version of me either Adrian Grenier or Timothy Chalemet.

Favorite vacation spot: 

It depends on the season. Favorite winter spot is Idaho, because I love the snow. If summer then definitely Hawaii. Both places are great and the people are so nice.

If you had a boat, what would you name it? 

S.S. Mosasaurus because anyone who knows me knows I love dinosaurs and how cool is that name, right?
