It took many years, jobs, experiences and people to gather the information and insights that Hit the Ground Running offers. There have been wonderful experiences and too many that were ultra challenging, but from everything and everyone I have learned what works and what doesn’t, whom to listen to and whom to just smile and nod at, and what’s real and what I want to be real but isn’t. This book is my legacy – an accumulation of almost everything I know and teach about being an actor.
