Originally born in Guam, Garrett Poladian was raised in Panama City Beach, Florida. Being the child of a military family, he had the opportunity to relocate to San Diego, California where his passion for the arts and involvement with the historic San Diego Junior Theatre began.

Garrett went on to study at the University of West Florida where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Advertising with a minor in Theatre. While enrolled at the university, he was a full time company dancer with the Ballet Pensacola, the only resident professional ballet company in the area. There he performed roles such as Arabian in The Nutcracker, Von Rothbart in Swan Lake, and Ichabod in Richard Steinert’s The Headless Horseman.

Most recently, Garrett was selected by Padraic Lillis to participate in a staged reading produced by The Farm Theatre, alongside two-time Tony Award nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega, on Micheline Auger’s original play #Love95Times.
