Elmorris was born and raised in Detroit, MI. Became a fan of acting by watching films as a teenager. He wrote, starred, and directed a short subject film at the age of 23 called “Be ya own person”. He moved to Atlanta to get into the music business, and did not perform any more acting until attending the Celebrity Actors Workshop and helping out the teacher. After reading a 2 minute monologue that was self written, the teacher made the statement “Elmorris, it would be a mistake for you not to pursue acting.” This statement stuck with him and he began working as an extra after getting info for films being shot in the Atlanta area. He took a break from the entertainment business for a few years to focus on wife & kids, came back in to direct a film, and soon after began studying method acting through Sandra Dorsey.
