Wesley Alley was born and raised in a small ranch town in Idaho that nobody has ever heard of called, Declo Idaho.  Growing up in the country, Wesley’s love for the outdoors and adventure were only matched by his love for movies.  Wesley remembers the day he knew he was going to make movies. He was sitting on his dad’s lap watching “The Goonies.” His parents had just gotten a divorce and he was going through a hard time. Wesley couldn’t figure out how to deal with it and didn’t really understand it, but at that moment, sitting on his dad’s lap everything was fine. The escape from reality that allowed him to get lost in the adventure changed him. Watching these kids take care of themselves and go on an epic adventure forever changed Wesley. He wanted to make movies like “The Goonies”. He wanted to affect other peoples lives like his had been. Wesley started his career in the entertainment industry very young, acting in school plays, community theatre, and anything else he could get involved in.
