I was born and raised in lil’ ‘ol Orange, TX and my 3 older sisters ensured that wearing silly costumes would not pose a problem in my later years. In fact it was my youngest sister’s stroke of genius casting me as all of the boyfriends/lovers in Pride and Prejudice at the ripe age of 9 that led to my film "debut".
It wasn't until 8th grade that I got another chance to act when the drama club teacher decided it would be a good idea to put on The Comedy of Errors. I was promptly cast as Dromio of Ephesus and didn’t look back. All 4 years of high school, I participated in Texas’ UIL One Act Play competitions, earning multiple awards.
I began attending Texas State University with the view to get into the Sound Recording program. After getting rejected by the School of Music twice, I walked down the hill and promptly joined the School of Theater and Dance. There I earned a spot in the BFA Acting program and the opportunity to study with the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon via the Texas at Stratford program.
Since graduating, I've worked with numerous theater and film companies in Austin as well as shooting several commercials. More details about my credits can be found in my resume.
I'm also very concerned with men's health. Check out my Movember page at http://mobro.co/thenovak
