He was born at his grandmother's Vermont home in November 1982 and raised in Los Angeles. He made his film debut at age 11 in the 1994 film "Blank Man,” playing the role of young Kevin. Later, Wayans pursued his early passion for fine arts and animation in high school before being admitted to the Otis School for Art and Design. He later performed in the series "My Wife and Kids” and landed a job as staff writer on the series becoming, at 20, the youngest staff writer in television.

Wayans is an accomplished mixed martial artist, snowboarder (complete with air tricks), former gymnast and high school track star. He loves to figure sketch and enjoys Japanese animation.
