“My name is Devon Werkheiser. I was born in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia where, at an early age, I discovered my passion for performing. With the help and support of my family, I followed those passions to Los Angeles where I have spent the last fourteen years pursuing my dreams of making an impact in the world of acting and music.
I have made my living doing what I love in television shows and films. Most notably my Nickelodeon show “Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide” which has a lot of you still calling me Ned. I’m not mad about it. That show was created to actually help kids learn ways to better survive school. I love hearing from people who say it helped them do just that. I am happy to have been a part of something that still has a place in your hearts. Although, I have worked hard to become an actor ready for a long term career.
I am equally passionate about music. While acting requires me to get hired by someone else, or put up a scene once a week in acting class, music I can play every single day. I play guitar and sing and have been writing songs since I was fifteen. I am an independent artist with two EPs and two singles, so far. I hope to record a full length album next. I write songs constantly and, lately, I have been putting live performances of them on my YouTube channel. I write songs to express what’s in my heart, in the hopes that it will resonate with you too.
I want to thank all of you who have supported me on this journey. It means so much to read your comments and messages. Following the path of your dreams is not always easy. I believe we are all creative souls, our creativity is expressed in different ways. Sometimes our art is just in the way we talk to people, or in the kindness in our hearts. Find out what your art is, and do it!”
