Biography

Abraham was born to a Jewish family and attended Chaparral High School in Las Vegas, NV where he was friends with Anthony Zuiker who encouraged him to enroll in Speech and Forensics (Dramatic Interpretation) coursework.[1] He eventually won the state championship in Dramatic Interpretation which led to a scholarship at Arizona State University.[1] Zuiker who wrote him some scripts that he used to win the national championship in Dramatic Interpretation and won a scholarship to attended California State's graduate school and also teach their Speech and Forensics team.[1] A friend of his introduced him to Law & Order star Angie Harmon who then introduced him to Russel Simmons and his agent Stan Lathan who liked his monologues.[1] Jenny Delaney from the William Morris Agency then started to market him to various casting directors including Francine Maisler at Paramount Pictures who signed him; his first check was for $30,000.[1] Although he was auditioning and getting paid, he did not win any roles. His agent encouraged him to write. He called Zuiker, who at the time was operating a tram in Las Vegas, and they decided to write a script about the Jewish mob in Las Vegas (Abraham had run numbers for the Jewish mob while in high school); the final product was called The Runner. After initially failing with the William Morris Agency, they sold the script to a Showtime director for a mere $25,000; unfortunately, before the Creative Artists Agency had reviewed it.[1] CAA had found a lucrative buyer but the director refused to sell and instead what he felt was a lackluster movie, The Runner, was produced in 1999 (although it starred John Goodman, Courteney Cox, and Ron Eldard).[1]

Abraham wrote his first script, which he calls boilerplate, for John Wells which got him some exposure.[1] Abraham then received a call from his agent that Method Man and Redman wanted him to write How High which was released in 2001.[1] Abraham then worked on the CSI franchise as a writer for nine years.[1] In 2007, he ventured into production and produced his first episode of CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Cockroaches, directed by William Friedkin.[2]
