You recently tweeted, “I want 2 date, like, everyone I see”, but tell us about your dream leading lady.
I’m lucky that I get to work with the ladies I do! They’re insanely special inside and out. I definitely look for a sense of humor and someone that can just make fun of themselves.
As someone who essentially started their career on social media, how
would you describe your online voice?
I like to keep it completely candid. I think my relationship with my followers is really cool. We can talk to each other like friends. It’s great. As far as my voice goes, I try to speak out about things I feel passionate about.
You’re filming three films right now – an Indie, a comedy and a drama. As a young actor, how do you transition within such an array of genres?

consider your fashion inspiration?
A lot of people! Austin Butler for one and Tom Odell for another. I love layering stuff, so I’m always looking for things to put on top of each other. I’ve also really been getting into homemade stuff lately. I’ve been getting patches and sewing
them onto my jackets.
What inspired your venture into the YouTube video medium from film?

my channel, I was so excited because it gave me another place to act.
Most fashionable fall accessory for 2016?
Sunglasses. I’ve been buying so many new pairs lately. I think having a good pair of sunglasses completes
And lastly, everyone needs to take a break from time to time. How do
you spend a day off?
I sleep, haha! I feel like I never have time to sleep with my schedule. I will usually lay in bed and read when I can. I love going to the beach and surfing. That’s definitely a good
way for me to relax.
