I sold shoes. I was in law school for a little bit. I worked at Adidas for about eight months, and before that I was doing merchandising and radio. I was studying acting during the night time, but for a few years after college, other than being a carpenter, I was just trying to do whatever I could do to make a few bucks.Mark Harmon, Rich Eisen Show
