He is portrayed by Will Kindrachuk.
Asher is first seen in the Student Council meeting as he tries to stay the meeting before going to the restroom, and he is later seen at the dance after School of Rock was chosen as the musical act over DJ Igneous (Brilliant Disguise). He is then seen buying a cupcake from Tomika in her campaign to save the koala bear, but is then interrupted by Summer and ignored by both girls (I Put a Spell on You). He is seen as the secretary for the school's student council and commonly has to use the boys' bathroom (something Summer later uses as a way to leave Freddy and Kale behind in Total Eclipse of the Heart). He seems to know about Zack's ways to make money as he tries one of Zack's spicy sandwiches and has to pay for milk and has worked for Zack a few times in Season 2. After the events of Total Eclipse of the Heart, he may have feelings for Summer and may be caught in a love triangle of him, Summer, and Freddy.
Asher's debut is in Do You Want to Know a Secret? as he talks to other students about School of Rock before he and Kale sing Future Starts Right Now together and discuss the band further, knowing a lot about them. He then talks with Tomika and she accidentally reveals she plays bass for the band. However, Lawrence knocks him out with a Jiu Jitsu technique so that when he woke up, he wouldn't remember what Tomika told him.
Not much is known about Asher, but what is known is that he is a good person. He's willing to help out in different causes, from Tomika's bake sale to Zack's investment business, and participates in many school activities, such as Student Council and the school's newspaper, "The Travis Tattler". He listens to the people around him as seen with staying in the student council meeting as ordered by Summer even though he had to use the bathroom as well as when Summer discussed astronomy with him on the school roof. He is shown to be very kind as he asks if Summer wanted to go with him to the bathroom a second time, congratulating her for her rash disappearing, and even adds chivalry with offering Summer his jacket when she was cold.
