Garrett Sergeant was born in San Clemente, CA to Sharon and Robert Sergeant. From the time he was born, Garrett was raised to love the outdoors. Being raised in a house with two brothers, a dozen dogs, fish, a cockatiel, and a father who couldn’t keep any of their names straight, it comes as no surprise that Garrett ultimately found himself at odds with civilized living and came to prefer sleeping outside on the ground. Despite being nearly eaten by a bear before he could even walk (seriously, ask my aunt Janet) he’ll still eagerly wake up at ungodly hours to drive out to the middle of nowhere and get lost in the woods for a week or two.
Garrett attended Concordia Elementary School where he learned to play the cello, write in cursive, never find himself speaking in passive voice, work with computers, curse at computers, and annoy his brothers, parents, classmates, and teachers alike with an encyclopedic knowledge of dinosaur and bird names. In the midst of his brief middle school career, Garrett was uprooted to New Jersey, a land with lots of trees, even more bugs, where all the people pronounced the word “water” funny.
From an early age, Garrett loved listening to and telling stories. That passion would lead him to the University of Southern California where Garrett was (somehow) successfully able to convince his parents that a career in film and television would be both pragmatic and fulfilling. It was there that he met the love of his life, Adi Cabigting, and also (somehow) convinced her that sticking with him would be both pragmatic and fulfilling. To date, Garrett is still unsure how he managed to get away with it.
