With his talent and passion towards his work, Bush went on to gain overwhelming responses from his fans.

He was born Oct. 13, 1971, in Manhattan, New York. His uncle George H.W. Bush was the 41st president of the U.S., while his cousin George W. Bush was the 43rd president and cousin Jeb Bush was the governor of Florida.
