I am a New York based actor who grew up in Anchorage, Alaska.  I have never lived in an igloo and never got around on dog sleds (my first car was a Honda Accord and my mother drives a Toyota Forerunner). I have never seen Russia from my house, but I have seen my share of moose, bears and other forms of wildlife.  Needless to say, I now live a different kind of "wild life" in New York, dabbling in all sorts of ventures.
