He spent his most of the first part of his life growing up in Las Vegas, before moving to Massachusetts, where he auditioned for the show ZOOM.
Guest Appearances on Other Shows
I'm funny, smart, short and fast. Other ZOOMers would say I'm nice, not tall but not short, intelligent and friendly. I love to act, sing, dance, draw and watch the clouds go by. My family is very cool. My dad is funny, my mom is awesome, and my sister is crazy but cute! And we've had lots of family pets: four dogs named Dixie, Dexter, Dutchus and Buffer, and two cats named Ashes and Sam. On the ZOOMset, I'm famous for rapping about the crew members. I love ZOOM games and made the game saving catch when we were playing Scoop . I think ZOOM playhouse really rocks, and the Café ZOOM Castle Cake is the tastiest ZOOMtreat around.
And to all the ZOOMers out there: Thanks for watching. I hope you enjoy this season. It is very fun making it, and I'm glad I can share it with you.
