Getz was born in Lehighton, Pennsylvania, United States (US), and has been skateboarding since the age of nine.
Alongside Fred Gall, Tim O'Conner and Rob Pluhowski, Getz was one of the original team members of the Habitat brand that was originally conceived as an offshoot of the now-defunct Alien Workshop skateboard company. However, in the announcement of Habitat's move to the Tum Yeto distribution company, Getz's name does not appear in the team list.
Getz is known for his anger issues towards his skateboarding, earning him the nickname "Hockey Temper." A montage of his outbursts appears in the introduction to his Skate More video part for the DVS Shoes company.
Getz owns a skateboard shop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, called Nocturnal Skateshop.
