Wesley was born and raised in St. Catharines, Ontario and eventually relocated to the west coast of Canada to pursue his studies. He graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Education and began his career as a high school teacher. It was while teaching about the ‘global village’ in his popular Social Study classes that he got the travel bug and decided to venture out and explore the world.
He backpacked around the globe for 5 years exploring over 50 countries and had the opportunity to immerse himself into many amazing new cultures. Along the way cherishing & growing with these invaluable life experiences he wore many creative hats: DJ, Lead Singer, Props Master, Teacher, Waiter, Bartender, Break Dancer.
The constant throughout these life adventures was Wesley’s joy of creating & performing. His parents had cultivated a love of the arts at a very young age and upon his return to Canada he immersed himself into the world of acting.

A Fine Young Man went on to win various awards at film festivals around the world and garnered rave reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival.
