ASHTON REID

ZACH

Ashton has been passionate about performing since childhood, when he would regale his family with full reenactments of playground antics. During high school, he worked in a variety of live theatre productions (both on and offstage) before taking a long hiatus to snag his degree in Supply Chain Management. With the grueling task of university behind him, he's excited to get back to the real work: playing pretend. In addition to acting, Ashton can be found writing, creating the occasional refrigerator-worthy work of art, and pretending to know how to cook. He is extremely excited to join the cast of Keep it Steady, and can be found on twitter at @VA_AshtonReid.
