“I want to be able to work from home. I moved to California many years ago to become an actor, and I only did a few movies the whole time I was there,” he said. .

“So to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams, whether it’s my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my youngest son as a golfer, that made a lot more sense to us.”
