Terence was born and raised in Detroit's notoriously tough west side. At the age of 14 he was attacked by a neighborhood gang and wound up flat-lining on the hospital table. Humor had its hand in his recovery and has since remained an integral part of his life.

As an adult, Terence relocated to Los Angeles where he fortuitously met actor and filmmaker Benjamin Koldyke who cast him in his short "Red Zone." A year later, Terence came home to a message on his answering machine from director Peter Farrelly saying he'd seen him in "Red Zone" and thought he'd be perfect for the movie he and his brother were doing. Terence promptly returned the call, nailed the audition and, before he knew it, found himself on set with Oscar alums Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear, Cher and Meryl Streep. He's since been seen in dozens of film and television roles.

Terence broke onto the scene in the Farrelly Brothers' "Stuck on You." He's been seen on the small screen in such shows as "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia", "ER", " "My Name is Earl," and "Raising Hope." He lent his comedic skills to the YouTube sensation "Jedi Gym" and has been featured in a slew of national and international commercials for such iconic brands as Disneyland, Sprint, Nissan and Southwest Airlines and Direct TV. His famous "I Feel Great!" Nutrigrain commercial has been downloaded well over a million times on YouTube.
