"I was trying to figure out how on earth I was going to make enough money to enable living in the United States of America. Which was always my dream. I worked in a restaurant for some time to make some extra spending money. One day on my shift I was lucky enough to serve a lady that owned a modeling and talent agency. She offered to get me started and that led to a radical increase in income and 10 years of traveling the world, from London to Cape Town and Tokyo to Los Angeles. With many cities in between. This was a great opportunity to see the world and experience many different cultures & countries. Eventually all the visas led to a Green card and on the 18th of July 2014, I was sworn in as an American citizen. I am very proud to say!"
Through his travels and experiences Gavin has accumulated an abundance of skills in theater, film and television.
