Born in Spain, Tirado grew up with a love for acting and the entertainment industry. He formed his first theatre company when he was 12 years old, performing scenes from films for local audiences. Throughout all of his schooling he was active in the arts, working to hone his craft and studying the movie business. Tirado made the decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of being an actor. He shares, “my parents have been my biggest supporters. They taught me to work hard, work smart, be positive, and think big. When I first moved to LA, all of these elements came into play.” Upon arrival, Tirado enrolled in acting programs to further study his craft. For four years he studied with The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, and at The Acting Studio at Edgemar with Michelle Danner.
