I am not the exchange student.

I am an actor and writer who currently has a book out (humor essays) about the entertainment industry. I include a chapter about race, and there are many many six word race cards I could have created. But being mistaken for the exchange student and many other like encounters are what made me develop a sense of humor—too see the funny side… which is how I make my living today. Though, I still wish there was a way I could go back in time to tell my teen self.
