On growing up in the spotlight: “I think me being under the age of 18 and starting as a ‘child actor,’ that is such a buzzword now. When you think of child actors, you think, ‘He goes to crazy parties and hangs out with all the hottest stars at the club.’ I don’t care about all the things that come with it, like the weird Instagram followers. I appreciate it, but I’m not in it for that.”

On being a filmmaker: “All my favorite directors and comedians are provocateurs, and they all test the boundaries. Hopefully as a flmmaker, I can portray what I want to portray in my movies and dance around the line and be able to say what I want with my art.”

On finding his first job on Craigslist: “There’s a young band from Vancouver and I did one of their first music videos. It was my first job. After that, I just loved being on set so much. It comes from me wanting to make friends all over the world. There’s no point in being a dick and trying to make enemies. That’s just so much harder to do.”
