Playing Scotty—"surfer boy handsome drummer for a small town Christian heavy metal band; bit of a clown, not-too-smart, loves Jesus."

Caleb was born and raised in Mountain Home, Arkansas, where he began acting at a young age. Wearing costumes sewn by Grandmamma and swinging swords carpentered by Granddaddy, Caleb and his three older brothers’ antics were captured by a VHS camcorder and turned into epic home movies.

It only took half a semester of high school theatre to convince teenage Caleb that acting was his passion. He studied at Creative Actors Studio in Springfield, Missouri while working on farm back home, and eventually moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he framed houses and built cabinets while taking professional acting classes.

During this time, Caleb played drums and toured with the regional Christian worship band, Leaving 99.

Caleb has appeared in numerous indie film, television, and music video projects. His most recent feature, Small Group, is a faith-based comedy which was released in late 2018.
