Maury Sterling: Petrified of Life, Insane and Cutting

Maury was born and raised in Mill Valley, California. As a kid he loved spending time at Muir Beach with his dog Fred, riding his Mongoose and doing local theater.

He was also fortunate to travel a great deal; Crete, France, Scotland, England, and Canada.

Maury chose to go to UCLA to get some distance from home and take a serious stab at Los Angeles. Upon graduating, Maury dove into life as a full-time professional actor.  He continued his studies at Circle in the Square in NY and ACT in San Francisco before settling back down in Los Angeles.
