At age three, he moved to Kokomo, Indiana, USA, where he grew up on James Street. His father, Roger F. Boneham, was a Professor of Geology at Indiana University.

He worked as a day laborer until he enrolled in nursing school, where he maintained a 3.2 GPA thanks to recording lectures and the Anatomy Coloring Book.

He moved back to Indianapolis where he worked in the mental health field, eventually founding his charity, Rupert's Kids.
