Fun Facts:

1. Photography is his low-key talent but people also don't know about the other cool thing he can do. "I can solve a Rubik's cube in about two minutes," he tells Sweety High. "It's one of those talents that isn't super useful, but I'm really proud of myself for being able to do it."

2. When he saw Elijah Wood IRL he freaked out mentioning, "I don't always get starstruck, but when I do, it's always embarrassing." Story of our lives, dude.

3. He gets mad props for being a dog lover, but his actual favorite animal is an owl. "They look beautiful and regal," he says. "They're just really dope in my opinion."

4.  The scariest thing he ever did has nothing to do with acting and everything to do with a haunted dance studio. "They didn't tell me it was haunted until we decided to stay there," he confesses. "I left immediately!"

5. He would definitely call himself a gamer. His absolute fave is Marvel's Ultimate Alliance.

6. He lives for new music. He's a proud addict and revealed, "There's nothing like finding a new favorite artist to me." Nothing would make us happier than to go through his record collection one day.

7. His food of the moment is ramen and his go-to place in Los Angeles is Tatsu Ramen. "They make a chicken noodle soup ramen that I always get when I'm not feeling well," he adds. "I'm not sure if it helps, but it tastes amazing."
