From an early age Holloway discovered a passion for films. Intrigued by the diferent cultures, places and people he saw in different films, he developed a love for motion pictures. After one year at the University of Georgia, he left Georgia on a Greyhound bus to New York City. Holloway later pursued a modeling career which took him all over Europe and North America.

Holloway's recent credits include guest star appearences on hit shows 'CSI' and 'Navy NCIS'.
