1. Co-wrote & produced w/ Eric Lyden based on his original idea. It was an eye-opening experience to be surrounded by & working w/ so many talented comics so early in my career. This video stars Eric Lyden, Ted Alexandro, Jeff Caldwell, Joe Matarese & Harris Stanton. It was an all-star cast & Eric is one of the nicest/coolest guys I've met on the scene. I still wish to this day that I could re-shoot this w/ a budget in place & my "Cult Comedy" crew backing my every step. Based on comic reaction, this was submitted to the Montreal "Just For Laughs" festival but unfortunately not accepted. Who knows, perhaps one day we'll get there!
    Many thanks to Patrick Muriuki who stepped in last minute & helped me direct & shoot this for no $ & just because he's a really nice/talented guy! Also special thanks to Tim Pasquin who stepped in, as a favor, & spent a lot of time editing this piece so it was perfect & can still stand as our little baby of a project...

  2. Having worked with Ted Alexandro on "Bring Her," I was thrilled when he asked myself & my producing partners, Brent Katz & Mike Huss, to shoot this video for him & Hollis James. They wrote this hilarious original song & we shot & produced the music video for them. Couldn't have been happier w/ the results & was honored to collaborate with the legendary comic, Ted Alexandro, yet again.

  3. My first foray in producing animation. Created & written w/ comic Rich Mazzaferro & good college buddy Joel Keeler. Animation done by Chad Mize & Phillip Clark of bluelucy (http://www.bluelucy.net/). It was their artistic talent that made this animation a great production. Largely self-financed, I do wish we had more money & time to work out the comedic kinks & make this short-lived web series funnier...

  4. My latest attempt at a Doritos spec commercial. I wrote & produced. Brent Katz directed & the wonderfully talented Albert Elmazovski (our go to DP on many of our projects) shot this. Couldn't be happier that comics (& spouses) Nick Cobb & Amy Albert Cobb hit their roles out of the park! I love these guys...

  5. My first spec commercial working with partners Brent Katz & Michael Huss. Brent wrote, Mike directed & I produced. We had such a great time working together & it yielded such a well done finished product that the rest is history...
    Starring Brent Katz, Akash Bhasin & Keenan Shimizu.
