  Biography  

 early life
Schwartz was born in 1976 in Providence, Rhode Island to Steve and Honey Schwartz. His parents were both toy inventors at Hasbro, working on the development of toys such as Transformers and My Little Pony, until they went on to start their own company. Schwartz grew up on the East side of Providence, Rhode Island with a younger brother, Danny, and a younger sister, Katie. Schwartz always had ambitions of being a writer since early childhood. When Schwartz was seven years old, he won an essay-writing contest at sleep-away camp for a review of the recently released movie Gremlins; the opening line was "Spielberg has done it again" and stood out amongst the pile of essays from the other kids. He even had a subscription to the entertainment industry newspaper Variety at age twelve. He attended Providence's private Wheeler School, a coeducational independent day school, for 11 years, graduating with the class of 1994.

I was in fourth grade, back in 1986 or '87, and I was at my first concert: Huey Lewis and the News at the Worcester Centrum. It's not the coolest story in the world. I was standing on my seat, on the tip of my feet, and Huey made like he had fake binoculars to scope out the audience. Then he pointed at me and said, 'This song is dedicated to that little guy right there.' It was "The Power of Love". That kicked it all off for me right there.

 personal life
On September 20, 2008, Schwartz married Jill Stonerock in Santa Barbara, California. Actress Rachel Bilson, who portrayed Summer Roberts on Schwartz's show The O.C., was the maid of honor at the wedding. Currently the couple is expecting their first child due in 2012.

He is Jewish.
