Eric Bartholomew Schexnayder was born and raised on the Northside of Lafayette, LA by "Earl the Pearl" and Judy. Eric, being a natural born entertainer, honed his honed skills in the Montgomery Ward parking lot of the Northgate Mall. His silky smooth voice and svelte 6'6' frame would soon catch the eye of the proverbial "Who's Who" of South Louisiana, especially the ladies. However, Eric was literally and figuratively too big for Louisiana, and would so go national. Eric made his big-screen debut at the Sundance Film Festival, giving a tour de force performance as Teddy-the Obnoxious Boyfriend in Zach Godshall's "Lord Byron".
