I have met the country singer Billy Currington. He is pretty down to earth and one of my friends was so nervous to be meeting a famous person that she was shaking. He told her, "Don't be scared. I'm just a normal guy that sings for a living." I thought that was pretty cool. I just went up to him and said hello. They are normal people, like Billy said, who have interesting jobs.

Its always special to meet some one who is a celebrity or a person of importance. But I dont like that way. I am satisfied with myself and would not like to meet any of the celebrities. Its because of us they have become celebrites and not by themselves, do you agree?

I've worked extremely briefly as a "handler" for both Sean Astin (Sam - Lord of the Rings, The Goonies) and John-Rhys Davies (Gimli - Lord of the rings, Sliders etc). I have also met and spoken to Ray Park - Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I. All really nice, down to earth people. I especially enjoyed meeting Mr. Park, and thought it was really awesome that he started giving a few fans "hands on" lightsabre training.
