Wilson was born in San Francisco, California and was raised in Sebastopol, a city in Sonoma County, California. His introduction to acting came thanks to his mother, Janis Wilson, a musical composer and musician. When he was nine-years-old, she was directing a local production of A Christmas Carol.

While he didn't do theater in high school, he partook in concerts and marching bands playing alto and tenor saxophone.
At fifteen, Wilson decided that he wanted to become a professional actor. While in high school he signed with Look Talent, a San Francisco talent agency. At seventeen, he began studying at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. Shortly thereafter, he landed a manager in Los Angeles who began getting him auditions.
Wilson has appeared in feature films such as Werewolf: The Beast Among Us (2012) and The Midnight Game (2013).

He made his debut on the soap on January 8, 2014.
Aside from his television and film work, Wilson has been cast in an array of television commercials for companies such as Allstate and AT&T. His first national commercial was for the video game Star Wars: Battlefront.
