I'm an identical twin, immediately mixed-up at the hospital. My parents flipped a coin and said- he's Thurman, put red nail polish on his big toe, and he's Trent. From then on, our parents were pro-active- we never wore similar clothes or sat in the same classroom. We became independent- and that's a good thing.
From 8 yrs old until I was 14 yrs old - me, my twin brother, our 2 sisters swam competitively (I was the butterfly stroke guy). Weekends during school, and then the summers were spent in practice or swim meets. Little time to get into trouble.
I also played the drums, in a kids band…it was show time! For a little while. Then we moved - to live on a lake (still in Michigan) where I swam, sailed, water-skied, drove speed-boats and motorcycled (dirt-bikes), and played my drums. My winters were snowmobiling, snow-skiing, hockey, and played my drums, Life was good.
From when I was 14 yrs old, until my second year of college, I worked for my father in one of his business. No time to get into trouble.
While in college, majored in Communications Arts- Radio and TV, worked as a campus disc-jockey, and performed in a few theater productions.
Then fell in love- got a full-time job, married, and we started a family (my bachelor’s degree- came 20 years later). Eventually we moved to California to join the family real estate business.
Went from full-time to part-time work, enrolled in acting classes and went full-time into my acting career. Soon signed with 2 talent agents- one in San Diego, and one in L.A. By 2005 joined SAG, and in 2011- joined AFTRA.
After 10 years I'm still with my same agents, plus a new commercial agent in L.A as of 2011. Continue to work and study the craft of acting and look forward to new opportunities every day.
