At what age did you start acting?
JM: It all started when I was 5. I was watching tv one night and was amazed by the kids on tv I asked my parents why I wasn’t one of them. From there I got an agent and a manager and booked my first commercial a PSA for Smart Power within a couple of months.
What’s your favorite charity?
JM: I am an ambassador and speaker for CHLA. This past year I held my first ever #ActionJax Movie Morning Fundraiser benefiting Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. I had the opportunity to use my network of industry friends, brands that I love, and companies who support me with great success. I was able to raise over $2,000 for the hospital. I’m looking forward to the 2nd Annual #ActionJax Movie Morning Fundraiser October 7, 2017!
If you were to star on a t.v show what would it be about?
JM: If I got to choose I would definitely star in a Transformers show. I saw the first Transformers movie in the theatre when I was little and it made a huge impact on me wanting to be an actor. It would be a dream come true to star alongside Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee.
What’s your favorite holiday?
JM: My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving I love to spend that day with my family cooking, and eating! I make special chocolate chip pumpkin spice bars every year!
What’s your favorite project that you’ve done?
JM: My favorite project so far is The Other Side of the Door I play the voice of Oliver, and Oliver’s ghost. I’m currently nominated for a Young Artists and Young Entertainer Award for my work on the film. It’s a horror movie with a lot of supernatural elements so if you’re readers like a good scare they should definitely check it out.
What do you do on your free time?
JM: When I’m not working I spend time on my charity work with Heal the Bay and CHLA. I’m also a competitive swimmer and archer. I’ve qualified for the Junior Olympics and am a championship team member of my swim team. If I’m not working or at an audition you will find me doing laps at the pool, or shooting at the archery range!
