At an early age, Warren was drawn to the stage, being cast in plays as early as the age of seven. He was also, simultaneously, trained in music performance and music theory since the age of five. From his early training, as a violist/violinist, he quickly developed a love for various types of music and art-forms. This passion urged him to focus on his own talents, making way for numerous opportunities in music performance and theater.
His music training started at the Wisconsin Conservatory of Music. There, he was taught violin until switching to viola at the age of fourteen. The Conservatory’s music program was later transitioned into The String Academy of Music at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Warren continued his training at the String Academy which gave way to various performance opportunities in chamber groups, honors orchestras, and music festivals.
Warren’s vocal talents were cultivated, early on, by his parents. He sang with the Beacon High School Advanced Choir (NY), Eastern Senior High School Advanced/Tour Choir (Washington D.C.), and the Milwaukee High School of the Arts Advanced Choir (Wisconsin). While at Eastern S.H.S, he received vocal training and choral direction from Joyce Garrett, the school’s highly decorated Choral Director.
During his time at Milwaukee High School of the Arts, he focused on cultivating as many of his talents as he could. He took acting classes and received theatrical direction from the school’s Musical Theater Director, David Valdes. In his senior year, he was honored to receive an award for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical Theater Production for his performance in the school’s fall musical production of ‘How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying’. Receiving this award cemented in his mind what was possible with hard work, and determination.
Since high school, Warren has gone on to photograph numerous models, artists and events. He has helped build the portfolios of up-and-coming models in Milwaukee and surrounding areas. As a videographer / producer, his short films have been featured on nationally syndicated television by ‘African American Short Films’ (Badami Productions) as part of their quarterly broadcast. He has produced various projects for numerous artist/clients throughout the Midwest. His acting talents have also allowed him to land multiple on-screen roles, voice-over, and commercial work.
Most recently, Warren has authored and illustrated his first childrens book, The Snories and the Magic Dancing Shoes. The story follows the adventures of three young characters who learn life lessons while having fun, all along the way.
