Germann, was a playwright and professor. Germann became a theater major at the University of Northern Colorado. He began acting in New York theatre including Biloxi Blues where he was the original understudy for star Matthew Broderick, Assassins, The Person I Once Was (opposite Holly Hunter) and War Games. He has had roles in numerous films and television shows, including Ned and Stacey. In 2006, he guest-starred in the series, Desperate Housewives.
Germann directed a few Ally McBeal episodes, including "Fear of Flirting" (season 5, episode 4).
