"When I was three years old I started playing girls hockey. By the time I was 14, I was refereeing. I wasn't old enough to drive a car, but yet I was going toe-to-toe with disgruntled parents. Yeah, I think it was about then that I knew I would feel comfortable running a set. When I turned 18 I got on a Grey Hound (the bus, not the dog.) Four days later I was in LA." Welcome to Hollywood, baby. What's your dream?
"If we're not having a good time and laughing, we're doing it wrong. There's no better place in the world than being on set."
