Wade is the most recent acquisition of Upstream Productions. Wade was born in the Conch Republic (Key West, FL) and grew up in St. Petersburg/Clearwater, Florida area. Wade was always a big fan of movies, but grew up a shy kid. He never entertained the idea of ever acting in front of a camera and focused more on athletics. He excelled as a football and wrestling star, receiving a football scholarship to the University of St. Francis in Joliet, Illinois. But despite having never seen a flake of snow, quickly fell out of love with the Land of Lincoln and returned home. Wade later earned his BA from St. Petersburg College, during this time he met Roger Turner. The two then took a 22-hour drive to New York to shoot a film with Dylan Murphy. And the rest is history. Wade has worked in almost every production role on every Upstream Production since.
