Born in Hartford, Connecticut, as an adolescent, Eugene Haynes IV was nurtured under the same tutelage as his uncle, Screen Actors Guild and Emmy Award winning actor (writer and director) Eriq LaSalle. Mr. Haynes moved to New York in September of 2004 after auditioning for AMDA (The American Musical and Dramatic Academy) to study acting.
After transferring to the Los Angeles campus to continue studying at AMDA, upon graduation Mr. Haynes consistently found work, acting, on the stage, in independent films, and commercially performing in a commercial for the national food chain Subway. Two years, thereafter graduation, and still unsatisfied Mr. Haynes decided to enlist into the United States Army in search of fulfillment.
