Todd Essary, born and raised in Austin, Texas, began acting as a hobby in 1997. Over the next 16 years - including over a decade in New York City - he took the stage playing lead or featured roles in works ranging from the Classics, to plays by modern masters, as well as avant-garde pieces. In 2013, he was cast in his first film, leading him to envision acting onscreen as a career. Since then, Todd has steadily forged forward, finding his way to more significant projects and more challenging roles.
