Although conceived in New York, Devin was born in Greensboro, NC. His mother being afraid of the doctors in NY drove down to Greensboro just to have him and then brought him back. His mother raised him in Queens for the first 8 years of his life. Then in order to be closer to the family, they moved down to North Carolina where he stayed through College. He shortly attended Catawba College on full scholarship and then North Carolina School of the Arts for Acting. After leaving College he moved to Florida and performed there for four years. Next step, New York! Moved there and within months got a job in the musical "Starlight Express" in German, in Germany, where he had always wanted to live, having grown up around Germans all his life. After finishing his job in Germany, he moved to Paris (another one of his dreams) where he went to school to learn French (L'Alliance Francaise) and lived there for a year. Then due to difficulties finding work in Paris, he came back to NY where within a month he began his Broadway career.
