As a youngster, he started partaking in the house of prayer plays. A short time later, when he was in eighth grade, he enrolled in the performance center of his school and started a passion for the acting profession. He graduated from Centennial High School in Boise, Idaho, in 1998. Even before graduating, he imagined moving to Los Angeles and thought of ways to earn money to make his big move.
