He credits Burton for inspiring him to be an actor.

He said he knew nothing about Hollywood besides that one needs to hang out in the place they think they are going to work. 

He would drive in from Orange County and go to La Brea and Sunset right by the phone booth. 

Since he knew no one, he slept on a little camper shell he had and waited for the phone to ring. 

According to him, he only knew one person from Hollywood whom he would call once a week. He didn't get his first job. 

He had to go to stage acting. He was a stage manager at Raleigh Studios. His career started from there. 

He was just really happy because it was his passion, so it did not matter at all when his friends who had graduated from the college said they earned 40k or 60k and he would be thinking of an interview that he was going to face in a month.
