Raised in Southern California, Garrett had dreams of one day building spaceships. After his undergraduate years at Berkeley studying engineering, he made his way East and settled in Ann Arbor. There he discovered his passion for storytelling after living with no good dirty creative types. He set his sites back on California, packed his bags, his rabbit and drove home. Now as an actor he hopes to one day play a spaceman on the silver screen but on the side, inspire young women to pursue science and engineering.
