Born and raised in Staten Island, Greg Rikaart never expected to be a successful, award-winning actor. Although acting was a bug Rikaart caught early in life, he did not decide to pursue his passion until graduating from Villanova University in Pennsylvania, when he took the plunge and moved to sunny California. But the acting game was a tough nut to crack, and Rikaart found himself waiting tables for three years and finding only small parts until he finally landed the role of David on DAWSON'S CREEK. After that, Rikaart could afford to quit his day job and focus on acting.
