  Biography  

 early life
Egglesfield was born in Farmington Hills, Michigan, the second child of Kathleen (née Dineen) and William Egglesfield, a physician. His mother is Irish. He has two siblings: an older sister, Kerry, and a younger brother, Sean. Egglesfield spent his early childhood in the Metro Detroit area. At the age of ten, he and his family moved to Crete, Illinois, a small community south of Chicago. Growing up, he was more studious than rambunctious, preferring to spend Friday nights alone building model airplanes. His dream was to follow his father's footsteps as a physician, but became interested in acting watching his older sister Kerry perform. He was brought up in a Catholic household.

Shy in his adolescent years, he credits his prep football coach with helping gain a positive self-esteem. Egglesfield graduated from Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights and went on to the University of Iowa's pre-med program. After he received his BS from Iowa he backpacked throughout Europe.

To earn money for medical school, Egglesfield turned to modeling. He won a contest , and soon after, he left medicine behind for a modeling career. He is signed with Beatrice Model agency in Milan, Italy, and DNA Model Management in New York City. He modeled for Versace, Calvin Klein, and Armani, among others before he started acting.

On September 20, 2005, he made his debut on All My Children, taking over the role of Josh Madden from his short-lived predecessor Scott Kinworthy. Beginning in the fall of 2009, Egglesfield portrayed chef/surfer guy, Auggie Kirkpatrick on CW's 2009 series Melrose Place. However, due to a change in the direction of the show, Eggelesfield and his co-star Ashlee Simpson-Wentz were fired and his character was written out of the show during the thirteenth episode.

He attended the Cackalacky Film Festival in Charlotte, N.C., where his film, Beautiful Dreamer, was awarded Best American Full Feature Film.

He owns and runs his own New York City-based clothing company Shout Out Clothing!, which he principally uses as a vehicle to promote and support educational initiatives such as Project Grad, and also "Stay in school" programs.
