Adrian grew up in Tampa, Florida and started acting in the 8th grade. Although Adrian started acting at age 14, he didn't take it seriously until his senior year when he landed his first full length theatrical production of the high school musical Fame. He grew up playing many sports such as baseball, football, and basketball but dancing was his life. Adrian was mostly known for his dancing ability and participated in countless hip-hop and break dancing competitions where he was extremely successful. His high school was looking for the lead dancer in the musical Fame, so Adrian auditioned and the rest is history.
Ultimately, dancing is what launched Adrian into acting, where he received a scholarship to the theatre program at the University of Central Florida, Orlando. Adrian had the fortunate opportunity to work with some of the top-acting professionals in the country. During his training at the University of Central Florida, he worked on Nickelodeon's Gamelab, Slimetime Live and the prestigious Orlando Shakespeare Festival. In 1999, Adrian decided with the training, knowledge and experience he obtained through hard work, it was time to move to Hollywood and live out his dream in television and film.
After arriving in Hollywood, Adrian struggled and found himself determined to propel forward... and that he did by landing a co-starring role on the TV show Profiler. From here, Adrian met casting director Anthony Barneo who became the reason Adrian is where he is today. Adrian joined Anthony Barneo's acting company Blue Sphere Alliance and had the opportunity to play multiple characters in the play "A Piece of My Heart." Having no representation, it was this opportunity that landed Adrian an agent, manager, recurring guest star (Battery Park), and a lead in a feature film (Artie). Through the success of his Ovation nominated performance in "A Piece of My Heart", Adrian has not stopped working and continues to enjoy countless television and film roles.
Some of Adrian's favorite guest starring and recurring roles include: CSI: Crime Scene Investagation, 24, CSI: NY, JAG, Alias, Frasier and Summerland. Some of his favorite film roles include S1m0ne (with Al Pacino), Graduation Night (with Abigail Spencer and Kevin Alejandro), All Or Nothing (jury award-winning film at the Hollywood Film Festival), Straight Jacket, and Artie (with Kevin Farley) and most recently was in "Hawaii Five-O.
Adrian can be seen almost everyday on the Disney Channel and ABC Saturday mornings playing the role of Esteban Julio Ricardo Montoya Dela Rosa Ramirez from the mega hit television show "The Suite Life of Zack and Cody." This is Adrian's most visible character to date and by far Adrian's favorite role yet.
Aside from acting, Adrian guest directs a syndicated kid's television show called "Kids Unlimited." Not only does Adrian act and direct, he has been a successful host on multiple TV shows. Some of his hosting credits include: The Big Talent Be (syndicated) Beach Diaries (Travel Channel), Slimetime Live (Nickelodeon) Viva TV (ABC), Kids Zone (GSN) and currently can be seen hosting "On the Up" for the SiTV network.
