As for his personal life, he married girlfriend Elizabeth Treadway in 2022 and the couple share one child together.

During an interview with The Native Cowgirl in 2019, the former child actor spoke about how he got his start in Hollywood.

“About six months after I signed with my manager, my father and I moved to Los Angeles,” he began. “I auditioned for a role in Frailty and was cast by Bill Paxton to play one of his sons ‘Adam’ in Bill’s film directorial debut. I had a great time doing that movie with Bill and Matthew McConaughey and it received a great response. Twister had always been one of my favorite films so getting to work on my first film with Bill Paxton was amazing.”
