Early life and education

Gisondo was born in Palm Beach County, Florida. His parents, Stacey (née Berke) and Ron, are ocean engineers. His last name comes from his paternal grandfather, who was Italian-American. His other three grandparents were Jewish. His maternal great-grandfather's surname was originally "Berkowitz". After he began working frequently, he was homeschooled for several years. He spent a number of years in high school involved in the Jewish organization USY, including going to Israel on a program offered by them. He attended Milken Community High School in Los Angeles, graduating in 2014.

In 2015, he began attending the University of Southern California's film school, first full-time and then part-time before taking a hiatus to work full time. He has stated that he plans to finish his college education.


Gisondo began acting on television at the age of six. In Southern California, his mother sent photos of him to talent agencies. This led to a successful audition for a national Pizza Hut commercial. Gisondo later appeared in other commercials and television episodes.

Personal life

Gisondo grew up in Florida and later moved to South Bay, Los Angeles. He is a resident of Manhattan Beach.

While filming Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and spending his senior year at the Vancouver high school, Gisondo asked Ben Stiller and Robin Williams to help him film a "promposal" formally asking his girlfriend to senior prom. They filmed a three-minute comedy routine with Crystal the Monkey.

Skylar has been in a relationship with Ari Haagen since July 2018.
