Born and raised in the San Francisco area and named after football legend Daryle Lamonica, Garrett was destined for greatness in sports. Although athletics were a huge passion of his throughout high school and college, the arts were equally fascinating to him, and he would always find ways to perform. From breakdancing and rapping to singing and dancing at local parks in the bay area, Garrett had the acting bug.

His undeniable talents in football would take him to college at Central State Ohio, where he played two seasons as inside linebacker. He then made the difficult decision to leave college early, to pursue a full-time career in the NFL. After training with several teams he realized his calling was not in football, and that he had to give acting a real shot. He packed up all his belongings and made the move to Los Angeles, obtaining a job working at FedEx upon arrival. His delivery route included the Warner Bros. lot, where he delivered packages to the cast of “Friends,” “Everyone Loves Raymond,” and “ER,” he was officially hooked. Garrett immersed himself in acting classes, and worked on getting his foot in the door.

In 2010, Garrett began landing guest star roles on top TV shows including “One Tree Hill,” “Eastwick,” “10 Things I Hate About You,” “Parenthood,” “CSI: Miami,” and “Single Ladies.” He also did a variety of recurring work, appearing on “Dark Blue,” “NCIS,” and he guest starred on USA’s “Suits,” which would open the door to a future relationship with the network. In 2011 he made his feature film debut with a supporting role in TRANSFORMERS: DARK OF THE MOON for Paramount Pictures.

2012 was a banner year for Garrett, landing a role on the Emmy-nominated USA series “Political Animals.”
When not working, Garrett loves to do yoga, he is a comic book fan, and he enjoys working out and staying fit. He is also dedicated to working with underprivileged youth, and supports various charity organizations that provide support for kids and teens. He currently lives in the LA area.
