Although the rest of my body followed much more recently, I've been trying my hand at acting for the better part of my life, and I continue to pursue the unpredicted, at times the unimagined. For example: uncannily, I do all my best acting just off camera for someone else's close-up; it's my signature move -- and everyone knows, if you want to make it in Hollywood, you need a gimmick. 

That's  why  I'm  in  New  York.
