I was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. As a young one I started acting, singing in choir, and dancing in show choir. I also, played sports such as varsity basketball, ran track and soccer.I recently moved from Michigan to California to pursue acting. I graduated from Michigan State University with a B.F.A degree in acting. I am currently studying at the Ivana Chubbuck Studio. I enjoy positivity and doing what I love (acting) to change the world. Look me up at jerryparkerjr.com and add me on social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. I would love to talk to other creative or non creative individuals. My objective is to change the world and inspire as many people as possible. The world needs us artists to shine the light on it-so lets shine it bright as possible-the choice is OURS.
Unique traits: Goofy, Advanced weight lifter, optimistic, funny in a "New Girl" corny type of way, confident, humble, emotionally available and sarcastic. There's many layers to Jerry Parker Jr. though so, lets just say I am flexible and adaptable.
