Choice Skinner was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York.
A chance meeting in the 90’s with R&B artist Rome had Choice relocating to California as a music producer in Rome’s entertainment company. He trained for over four years of diligent study at Bobbie Chance’s “Expressions Unlimited” acting studio which prepared Choice for appearances on television shows like “The District”, “How I met Your Mother” also in films titled “Killjoy 2 Deliverance From Evil”, “Black Magic” and the horror/comedy film “Cryptz” in which he starred as lead.
A sample of his additional acting work includes an episode of “The Shield”, the prestigious television show “Lost” (in which he performed a stunt), the film “Transylmainia” and most recent “Free Samples” starring Jessie Eisenburg and Jason Ritter. In the spring of 1999 he wrote his first screenplay titled “A New Life” and has since completed his eighth script entitled “Two Wrongs Make A Right”. His fifth script “The Sins Of My Father” advanced to the quarter finals and top 5% of 2004’s Nicholls Screenwriting Fellowship.
Choice’s background as a director started with his first music video entitled “Summer Rain” for the artist known as “Serron”.
