Born in Weatherford, Oklahoma, Skyler traveled over 45 states before his 7th birthday. The grandson of a Navy Pharmacist, Skyler and his mother traveled until they eventually settled in Amarillo, Texas. Skyler’s passions are Tennis and Anime. His love of tennis won him several trophies as well as the road to a full scholarship from The University of Texas.
In the spare minutes that Skyler wasn’t practicing tennis, he pursued his other interest, acting.
In 2012, Skyler made a bold decision, to pass on his scholarship to UT and leave home to follow his dreams of being an actor. This decision was a tough one, but one that his family supported whole-heartedly. With the financial help from his grandparents, Skyler went to NY to find a manager or agent that could help him actualize his dream.
In NY, Skyler attended the International Modeling and Talent Association, where he went against over 2,000 participants and won first runner up in print and a 10,000 dollar scholarship to the New York Conservatory for the Dramatic Arts. From this, he landed his first manager. Passing up his scholarship in NY, at the advice of his new manager, Skyler drove to Los Angeles without knowing a soul.
Skyler’s first year in LA started out by taking classes under Brian Riese, Ryan R. Williams, Andrew Magarian, Aaron Marcus and other notable acting coaches. Now he has grown out to be one of the newest and brightest upcoming stars.
Within just a year of arriving in Hollywood, Skyler’s credits grew incredibly fast and within his second year of being here, he now has been on TV shows such as, Disney’s “I Didn’t Do It”, HBO’s “Silicon Valley”, Nickelodeon’s “The Thundermans” and the newest spin off of the hit show “Criminal Minds”, “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders”.
Skyler’s inspirations are actors like Johnny Depp and Adam Sandler. He admires the way they make their craft fun, seemly effortless and always original. His mantra is, “If not Yes, then Why Not?” No is not an option for Skyler. Look for him in more TV and Film projects coming up!
