Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, Kerry began performing as a magician and musician at an early age. After graduating from high school, and while serving a mission for his church in Australia, he added ventriloquism to his magical and musical performing skills. After college, he married, and with his wife, Carla, joined a USO tour, performing his variety act all over the world. Featuring a dummy who did celebrity impressions that included Elvis, an agent remarked on how much Kerry’s voice sounded like Elvis’ and suggested he do an Elvis act. Kerry shaved his beard and dyed his hair black; thus began his Tribute to the King that has delighted audiences around the world for over 30 years. He has performed in over 36 countries and for every venue imaginable.
Kerry makes his home in Orem, Utah and travels thousands of miles each year, performing his variety act and/or Tribute to the King. He is often seen on cruise ships traveling to Alaska, Hawaii, China, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean.
