I moved to New York in the middle of my junior year at Vassar and commuted, I was just so eager to see what was out there for me in terms of working as an actor. I met a manager through a roommate and was introduced to an agent, and the next thing I knew, I was auditioning for a bunch of stuff, commuting to school and writing my thesis at the same time. I kept going until I realized I was in over my head and wasn't ready to do it for a living. So I stopped and studied acting for two years with William Esper. He turned everything around for me.
