Van Wilson wanted to be Indiana Jones when he was little boy, and a baseball player, and a golfer, and a doctor, and a singer, and a youth minister, and a…then he realized that if he became an actor, he could do it all. He studied youth ministry at Ohio Valley University but spent the majority of his time in the theatre and with the school’s traveling drama/improv group Ambassadors. He decided he ought to put his degree to use after graduation. He was a youth minister in southern Ohio for two years, but acting kept nagging at him until he succumbed. He moved to Chicago two years ago and has been studying improv ever since. He still does the youth ministry thing because Jesus.
