Early life and education
Omundson was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, to a railroad worker father and teacher mother. After his family moved to Bellevue, Washington, he started studying theater at the age of twelve at the Seattle Children's Theater, and interned at various theaters during his high school years. With acting as his primary focus, he studied during the summer of his junior year in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. For two years in a row, he was Washington State Debate Champion in Dramatic Interpretation.
At the age of 13, Omundson spent a month traveling in Germany and Austria with his father, a time he views as one of the most formative months of his life. After graduating from Bellevue, Washington's Interlake High School in 1987, Omundson went to the University of Southern California where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater. He won USC's Jack Nicholson Award and James and Nony Doolittle Award for outstanding achievements in acting.
