Born in Slidell, LA and raised in Charlotte, NC Kole has been a part of creating and inspiring art in the community since he could talk, but his passion for singing began with The Charlotte Children's Choir in his youth and later took the stage.
This led Kole to attend North West School of the Arts for Middle School where he trained under many of the same educators that also taught Broadway/TV performers: Eva Noblezada (Miss Saigon & Hadestown), Renee Rapp (Mean Girls), Phillip J. Richardson (Hamilton & Little Voice), Abby Corrigan (Jesus Christ Superstar LIVE), and many others!
Kole then went on to graduate with his BFA in Musical Theatre Performance in 2017 from East Carolina University! Since, Kole has worked at an equity theater level, performed at regional theaters/playhouses, theme parks, children show tours, directed/choreographed, and held many various jobs across the United States.
"I am grateful for every role I get to portray. I am doing what I love and I couldn't thank those who have supported me enough."
Outside of the theatre Kole is an activist. From earning his Eagle Scout Award in 2010, to receiving a National Certificate of Merit for lifesaving, Kole continues to challenge the possible.
"A wise man once told me "balance is the key to life". I think that statement rings true and helps me with everything I do."
