Galen Gering was born on February 13 in Los Angeles, CA.
Gering’s hippie parents gave him a Greek name because they wanted to call him something offbeat. It means “calm healer."
At age 18, Gering moved to New York City to pursue a modeling career.
Gering previously worked as a caterer, a house renovator and a butcher.
Gering has two sons, Jensen and Dillon, with wife Jenna.
