Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!


#Quote
1 I'm with my mom so much that it's like if we go out to eat somewhere, we probably say ten sentences to each other. We're like an old couple. There's nothing that we have to say. It's okay to sit there and just be.
2 I think it's healthy to hate. I think it's extremely healthy, because without hate, you cannot see love. Without red, there wouldn't be any green. That's not a very good metaphor but, you know, it's the same.
3 I was such a nerd when I was younger and I may look different now and girls may like me, but I still feel like that nerd.

#Trademark
1 Bright blue eyes
2 Rich voice
3 Youthful appearance
