Zach-Ryan Graves was born raised in a small town in Ohio. With big dreams throughout High School, he was bitten by the performance bug participating in multiple plays and was an asset in his glee club. He won numerous awards during glee club competitions for best performance and best male solo. After high school, Zach-Ryan served in the military to help pay for college, dreaming of going to the New York Film Academy.


After completing his service, he started to pursue acting more intensely by completing acting courses in his area in Ohio. With Richard Mason, Brodway2LA, and a year of improv with The Nest Theater. Soon after, he was signed by Heyman Talent and was in local commercials and modeled in local magazines. Noticing that work in Ohio was limited. He enrolled in the New York Film Academy in South Beach, Florida, to receive more training to perfect his craft and work in a more lucrative environment.


He is currently working toward a BFA in Acting and performing in the area. Zach-Ryan is passionate about his craft and loves the art of filmmaking and musical theater. One of his favorite quotes is "Live now. Make now always the most precious time." - Sir Patrick Stewart
