Raised in San Diego, Henze studied liberal arts as well as television and film at the University of California, Irvine. He began his career at the William Morris Agency, in the motion picture literary and talent departments, before segueing into the management/production business in 1993.
In 2002, Henze co-founded the Beverly Hills management firm, Thruline Entertainment, with friends and colleagues J.B. Roberts and Ron West, and the following year Tagline Pictures was formed to serve Thruline's production and development interests. The two entities have steadily grown to now consist of more than two-dozen employees and executives, with Thruline representing some of the hottest actors, comedians, writers & directors in the business, and Tagline managing the production of PSYCH, while concurrently handling the development of several other television and film projects.
Henze resides in Los Angeles with his wife and two sons.
