Father: Physiologist, Gun Slinger.
Neighbors: Circus folk. Trained monkeys to dress up as cowboys. Riding atop donkeys, they jumped through rings of fire into a swimming pool three stories below – “The World Famous Aqua Mules.”
A fan of music, I directed music videos and a series of short documentaries; BECK: “10 Years of Mellow Gold.” I went up and down the west coast a few times on tour with bands; The Lamps, The Intelligence, The Dirtbombs and The Black Lips.
Now I focus on my first love: directing comedy and working with comedic actors. A member of the Upright Citizens Brigade, I write and direct for commercial production as well as funnyordie.com and collegehumor.com.
I direct TV shows, commercials, shorts, sketches, videos and draw cartoons.
