Williams was raised with his three siblings in Tulsa, OK. Although he had a passion for drama and music he graduated high school intending to study medicine at the University of Tulsa. However, after signing up for voice lessons, Williams changed his career plans. He complemented his bachelor's degree in theatrical studies with an MFA in Acting from Rutgers' Mason Gross School of the Arts, where he studied under William Esper.
Upon graduation, Williams landed a job with Joseph Papp at the New York Shakespeare Festival. He debuted at the Delicort Theatre in Central Park in The Taming of the Shrew with Morgan Freeman and Tracy Ullman, and appeared in Richard III with Denzel Washington. Williams continued to perform on and off-Broadway and toured nationally in productions such as Guys and Dolls, Les Miserables, Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Ragtime and Showboat.
Williams and his wife now live in Dallas, TX, with their daughter, puppy and bantam chickens. His fascination with the arts and music extends into photography, songwriting and playing the harmonica, guitar and fiddle. Williams' adventurous side takes him to the mountains, where he enjoys hiking and mountain-biking.
