Introduction grew up 95% in the heart of the city of Seattle and 5% on his grandparents’ cattle ranch in Eastern Washington State along the Columbia River. After short student trips to Spain and Costa Rica, a couple improv acting classes, and, of course, high school, he left to study at the University of Chicago. There he picked up a double-major in Political Science and International Studies, speaking roles in over a dozen student theater productions, a study abroad experience in India as well as a part on an NBC-Universal show about his experiences there, and a 2008 Olga and Paul Menn Award for Fiction. After graduating with honors, he fulfilled his childhood dream of running away to see the world, traveling for over a year and a half across every continent, visiting more than 60 countries in the process. He now lives in New York City, where he's seeing how far he can get as an actor.
