Cameron was born in San Pedro, CA, while his father, a US Navy officer, was deployed to the Arabian Gulf. His dad returned when Cameron was almost 6 months old whereupon the family moved to Dad's new duty station in Newport, Rhode Island. Later they moved to Yokosuka, Japan; Monterey,California; and Kansas City, Missouri. However, Cameron always longed to move "back home" to Los Angeles.
When he was in kindergarten he would watch Disney shows. During commercials he would jump up and say, "this is how I would do it!!" and re-enact the show with his choices. After his family was cast in a national Walmart commercial, Cameron was determined to make acting his career choice.
In 2006 he participated in an acting competition in NYC. Agents said they would sign him if he would move. Within 3 weeks his family packed up their goods and returned to Los Angeles for him to pursue his passion to act in television and film.
Cameron has two older brothers, Nick and Phillip. Nick is also an actor who can't imagine doing anything else. Phillip is a US Army Sergeant who wants to return to Los Angeles to act after his time in the Army is completed.
