Myk was born in Clearwater, Florida and raised mostly in Rome, Georgia and Russellville, Alabama. As a young man, Myk played football and ran track — for which he won all-state honors — for the Russellville High School Golden Tigers. He then attended the University of Utah after winning a full scholarship to the Actor Training Program, under the tutelage of Kenneth H. Washington.
While at Utah, Myk appeared in more than 20 productions, both at the University and professional level. He also served as social chairman and rush chairman for the Utah Alpha chapter of Phi Delta Theta. After finishing at Utah, Myk studied at The Shakespeare Theatre in Washington, D.C., with Michael Kahn and Lynne Redgrave.
Myk moved to New York City on the day of the biggest snow storm the city had seen in over 100 years. After the snow melted he began his professional career and has never looked back. Soon after his arrival in NYC, Myk made his Off-Broadway debut in Tim Blake Nelson’s Anadarko at Manhattan Class Company. He then went on to appear in numerous Broadway and Off Broadway productions including the wildly popular Take Me Out (winner of two Tony Awards) and Hank Williams: Lost Highway. During his Stay in NYC, Myk was a founding Member and original Artistic Director of Esperance Theatre Company. He also played guitar and sang for the popular NYC underground rock band “Utah Mafia”.
Myk currently resides in Los Angeles, where he plays guitar and sings for his new band “Stumpwaller” when he’s not acting. He has made his mark as an actor, director, playwright and musician, and has to date appeared in well over 100 professional projects from Broadway to major motion pictures.
