Jeff Lorch cut his teeth as an improviser spending years playing at IoWest, UCB and The Groundlings, and spent even more years in theatre, most recently on stage at the Kirk Douglas in AMERYKA, at Pacific Resident Theatre in Eugene Ionesco's RHINOCEROS, and Rogue Machine in NEED TO KNOW. Born in Southfield, Michigan by a strong willed mother, and raised in true discipline by a French father, he had the fortune of spending summers and winters in both environments growing up, from horseshoes and bowling to red wine and "no elbows on the table".
Beyond acting, he has written two feature films and two pilots, and has grown photography from a side hobby to a full professional art.
