I caught the acting bug fairly early in life. At my Montessori school, I performed the song "La Cucaracha" in a sombrero whilst shaking maracas. I was hooked from there. After playing parts in several elementary school productions, I took about a decade long hiatus before seriously considering acting and performing as my career.
Unique traits: I don't really care to mention these types of things, as I don't brag, but if you can consider overacting and facial contortions "unique traits", I assume those count. I've also been told that my voiceover impersonations aren't too shabby.
