Ron grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where he was exposed to the arts at the age of 11. By getting involved in the performing arts and playing organized sports gave him a productive way to keep himself off the rough streets of East Cleveland; where many of his neighborhood peers were involved in gangs and other unfulfilling activities. Ron became a member at the East Cleveland Community Theater and caught the acting bug and stayed active throughout his adolescent years. He also got numerous bookings through his local talent agency which kept a few dollars in his pockets, but more importantly it helped him to become independent.
Upon graduation from Euclid high school, he moved to Columbus, Ohio to attend The Ohio State University. While there, he received a Bachelors of Science in Business Management with a concentration in Finance. During his time at Ohio State, he participated in an array of extracurricular activities including varsity football. While his educational focus was only a minor in theatre and performing arts, he still remained active pursuing a career in entertainment outside of school.
