Garrett was homeschooled with his brothers and sister in the evergreen woods of Washington State. It was there that he nurtured his passion for animals, Sign Language, the rain, and acting. After high school he packed up his 94’ Camry with some snacks and moved to Los Angeles.
Garrett appeared in numerous national commercials for companies including X-Box, Ford, and Toyota, and the films Godless and Thicker Than Water. After studying with some incredible teachers in LA, he desired a more rigorous conservatory education.
In 2015, he moved to Chicago to attend The Theatre School at DePaul University where he will graduate this June with a BFA in Acting. Garrett was also blessed to spend the summer of 2017 in Oxford, England studying with the British American Drama Academy in association with the Yale School of Drama.
Recent TV/theatre credits include: Chicago Med, Chicago Justice, a workshop of Tarell Alvin McCraney's "Ms. Blakk For President" (Steppenwolf Theatre), “Eroica” (Redtwist Theatre), “Three Sisters,” “Mr. Burns: a Post-Electric play”, and the U.S. premiere of Robert Icke’s “Oresteia” (Theatre School at DePaul).
