What's your favorite tech toy
that has internet access?
My favorite tech toy, hands down is my iphone. I can't live without
it. It's singlehandedly responsible for shortening my attention
span! I'm never bored so long as I have it, and I am much more patient
while traveling because it keeps me company. My iphone is also a
slave to my mood...if I feel like listening to music, it's there.
Watch a movie? It's there. Read the newspaper? It's there. Answer
emails? Surf the net? It's there. I even use it as a remote control
for my computer. Oh yeah...it also makes the occasional phone call!
Do you tend to watch films or television shows digitally?
I find myself watching more and
more television online, or streaming. It's a great way to discover
programming that I might not have otherwise found. I travel quite
a bit, so I don't get to choose which channels my hotel room receives.
By using my computer to watch tv programming, I get to see all
my favorite shows no matter where I am.
What is the biggest thing that has happened through the
internet for you?
I don't know what the biggest thing that
has happened for me from the internet is. That's the great thing!
There are so many possibilities. I don't know who has gone online
and watched my work, or read an interview and the butterfly effect
that action may have had on my life. It's just cool to know that
the activity and buzz is out there.
Have you gotten any acting jobs because of the internet?
I don't think I've gotten any jobs
specifically because of the internet, but I'm positive that it
has acted as a support.
