Ingram grew up in Oakland, California. Following his military service, he relocated to Los Angeles and enrolled in UCLA. While at school, a friend entered his name in a modeling contest, which led to appearances on the syndicated Star Search. Ingram walked away with the show's top prize in the male modeling category, which brought him a professional contract with the prestigious Ford Agency.
After hosting a scuba diving program on the Discovery Channel, he met another former Force Recon Marine, Phil Neilson (one of Hollywood's premiere stunt coordinators), who recruited Ingram to work as a stuntman in Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down. He followed it with stunt work in the upcoming sequels The Matrix Reloaded and Matrix Revolutions.
