“I am an actor, formally, and I needed a nice job with flexibility.
I tried a lot of other jobs, like handing out fliers in Times Square in costume (I was John Lennon in a Sargent Pepper outfit, a sailor in a pink outfit to advertise La Cage Au Folles when it was on Broadway), receptionist at a gym, and then I found dog walking.
It is a lot less emotionally degrading.
I like lots of things about the dogs.
I like that other’s no ego or persona.
The dogs just are who they are.
They are always living in the moment.”
