  • As a child actor, he wasn't given a "normal" childhood; was part of a cutthroat industry, was going to auditions every day.
  • Hooked on to things like toys, skateboarding, music to make up for lost time, help his imagination grow.
  • Got a good feel of how the television industry worked-which was helpful down the line-but left it to pursue music.
  • Figured out that performing under a persona made people pay attention to him, made it easier for him to sing his feelings.
  • Started the band The Aquabats, who dressed up as superheroes and fought monsters on stage.
  • From there, they had the idea for Yo Gabba Gabba!, but previous experience with television networks compelled them to produce it themselves.
  • Quit their day jobs and took out loans to make the show happen; says it was hard because by then, he had a family depending on him.
  • Stresses that you have to put yourself in "sink or swim" situations, don't just let yourself float through life.
