"Staying mentally busy and active is just as important as remaining physically active since the mind is the central system to all your decision making, and the pinnacle to where growth starts."

About: Performing since 2009, jousting, sword fighting, horseback riding and entertaining an audience has been the lifestyle I continue to live as.
Since moving to Vegas, I have been more involved in the modelling and acting aspect of the industry, connecting with hundreds of people across Las Vegas.
Tell us something about yourself. What you do, passion and aspiration in life?: Music is always an emotional escape, and playing the piano as a hobby is something I do daily. Self-ambitious, and daily practice is the training I have put into learning to play the instrument. Along with that, I am a drummer, and writer on the side. Staying mentally busy and active is just as important as remaining physically active since the mind is the central system to all your decision making, and the pinnacle to where growth starts.
Who is your inspiration in life? How do you keep inspired?: Anyone individual who has lived a hard life and dug their way out to make it out on top are individuals I inspire to be alike. It shows that anything is possible, and you are the creator to your own desires and aspirations. Years of consistence and persistence is what it takes to perfect a craft which you eagerly desire to live and breath as on a daily basis.
What is your aspiration in life?: The ability to live the life I desire through sheer determination and to be able to help others in need at any given point is where I would love to take myself to. To be self-employed and living on my own terms as opposed to someone else's rules and regulations where contradicting conflicts tend to impede on the natural growth of an individual.
What is the most challenging part of your profession?: The horseback riding has always been a difficult skill to master. The inconsistencies with the horses, their temper, and the fact that no one horse is alike brews up a challenge all on its own. One slight sound could spook the horse, and now you're on for a ride you'd rather avoided. But it's another skill which simply requires hundreds of hours of training to truly grasp onto to the best of your ability.
We all make mistakes we wish we could take back. Tell me about a time you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.: When you’re working with a large number of customers, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. How do you go about prioritising your customers’ needs?:
Tell me about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities.: In the entertainment industry, many of us are connected with other agencies and looking to partake in side gigs, such as commercial work or print work, and trying to find a way to receive the time off to successfully take on another project is difficult at times. Though with some collaboration with other performers and with the management, they are always doing their best to make the situation work the best they're able to.
