later when I was either working in some

of these same locations in films or

wanting to return to see the changes over

the years and, it's nice to be able to

experience a place again with a few

dollars in your pocket this time around. 

What have I learned from all these

experiences, is a very short question that

has an endless answer that I hope will go

on forever. That was a bit esoteric for an

answer to your question.

One of the many things I have learned is,

yes there are very bad people near us and

out around the world, but much more

importantly I would say there are by far

great, wonderful, giving, caring people,

near all of us every day all around the

world.

 

'Learn your craft, show up and deliver and hopefully realize that you are not more special than anybody else'

You were one of 13 children growing up. What would you say was the best part of growing up

surrounded by such a large family?

Being from a family of 13 was, in many ways, such a gift. Aside from financial struggles that

many families of all sizes go through.

The gift was realized years later and still is to this day...

And that was being one of many, 7 brothers and 5 sisters, with different ideas, opinions, feelings

and experiences.

When we're young we look at others opinions as confusion and frustration, and might take so

many things personally and years later realize it was only the beginning stages of individual

growth of clarity and variations.

That is interesting, because I grew up as an only child, so I could not even begin to imagine

what it was like to be surrounded by so many people. Before you got into acting, you traveled

the world doing odd jobs here are there. Can you tell us what you did and what you learned

from that experience at such young age?

I'm grateful for this whole wonderful life that I've been fortunate to live, which has allowed me

to experience people and cultures in every part of the world. 
In the early years as a hippie backpacking, hitchhiking around the globe, Europe, Asia, Africa, The

Middle East. Hiking in the Himalayas ...

Working all kinds of odd jobs from Sword Fishing in the North Atlantic to Construction sites in

the Middle East, driving an Ambulance in Germany, and returning to all these places years
