While in college he made numerous local and national commercial appearances around the country, including several history channel epics, and in a 2002 Interview he was quoted by News Reporter, Quentina Metcalf as "being thankful for all of his blessings, including being a 2004 Golden Apple Scholar, and his first major feature accomplishment, "Holiness In Time", in which he gives an enormous amount of credit to his mother, Kathy Dowdell.
