He graduated from high school with best actor honors and continued to perfect his craft at the University of Wisconsin, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in film. Upon graduation, Dale headed to Los Angeles where he worked for two years as a set builder, and soon after began pursuing acting roles.

He has also appeared on "Trauma," "Cold Case," and all three shows in the "CSI" franchise. His feature-film credits include "The Hangover," "Tekken," "The Bucket List," and "Mr. 3000."
