Life and career[edit]

He began his acting career at the age of six, working in commercials and modeling for several print campaigns. He segued into television, landing a guest star role on Family Law, then on Boomtown, Malcolm in the Middle, 7th Heaven, Providence, The Division. He played a supporting role in George Bamber's The Mostly Unfabulous Social Life of Ethan Green, which then led to a major supporting role in Gregg Araki's Mysterious Skin, a guest role in an episode of Six Feet Under, and a semi regular role as Noah Newman, the son of Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) and Sharon Newman (Sharon Case) on soap opera The Young and the Restless in 2005.

His role in Mysterious Skin (2004) was as the 8-year-old version of the character played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, one of the film's leads. In this film, he plays one of two boys who are groomed into a sexual relationship by a Little League baseball coach. However, the film was shot in such a way that the young actors were kept unaware of what they were reacting to.[2]
