  Biography  

 life and career
Zuiker was born in Blue Island, Illinois, in the same hospital as CSI: NY star Gary Sinise. When he was six months old, his family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where his mother, Diana, worked as a blackjack dealer, and his father as a Maître d'. Zuiker attended Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona, for three years and then transferred to the University of La Verne in La Verne, California, before transferring to the University of Nevada at Las Vegas, where he graduated. During all four years he was involved in competitive forensics, advancing as far as semifinals at the national speech tournament.

At the University of La Verne, he joined Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

In a talk at the International Mystery Writers Festival in June 2008, Zuiker said that he was working as a tram driver in Los Angeles when he came up with the idea for the series. He said he was about to go out to play basketball with some friends when his wife asked him to stay in and watch The New Detectives on the Discovery Channel. "I decided to stay, and that changed everything". He also freely admitted that he knew nothing about writing for TV and therefore his pilot script "broke all the rules," thereby creating the programs' characteristic visual and storytelling styles.
He also attended Chaparral High School which is located in Las Vegas, Nevada. The picture of the theatre is the school theatre at Chaparral High.
