"Minh sẽ kể cho nhau một câu chuyện về chúng ta."
"You and I will tell each other a story about all of us"
Since his high school offered the Theatre department almost no funding, he and his classmates got creative to produce ambitious plays like His Dark Materials, The Pillowman, and Waiting for Godot. They essentially formed a Theatre company - learning to build or scrounge for whatever they needed. They even converted their classroom into a black box theater, but a surprise visit from the superintendent forced them to change it back. This combination of resourcefulness and cheekiness made a mark on him during a formative time of his life.
After graduating from the University of Houston Professional Actor Training Program, he worked across the country honing his skills at various regional theaters. He then moved to New York City and began working Off-Broadway and on film and television.
Through it all, he keeps close what his parents asked him all through his childhood.
"Trong đời sống này, con muốn đi đường nào?"
[In this life, which road do you want to walk down?]
It's one that makes them proud.
