Los Angeles, California
Rocky lived in Los Angeles and worked as a drama teacher at Paul R. Williams High School. He is described as a teacher who enjoyed teaching his students about life and how to deal with the different things that pop up in it. He also puts the lessons he teaches into acting, to deliver a stronger message to his students.
One morning at the school, Rocky and other school staff, along with Madison Clark, Travis Manawa, and principal Art Costa, watched a video of a zombified man attacking emergency services on the highway.
