Early life and education

Unlike many actors, Kurt hadn’t dreamed about becoming an actor; he had an interest in math and computers, and the only acting experience that he had was when he played a horse in a school play.

Kurt then launched his career as a software developer at a Fortune 500 Company, in Cleveland, and as he said, he was satisfied with his life and career. One Saturday night, Kurt was hanging out with his friends, and when walking back to their cars, he noticed an ad in a storefront. The Houde School of Acting was looking for new students, and since Kurt was looking for some hobby to have after work, he applied.
