I've been acting professionally for close to 15 years and work regularly in TV and commercials.

I’ve been directing in some capacity my whole career: plays, sketch shows, short films, promos. I also do coaching.
My goal is to help actors become physically and emotionally loose beasts.
I lead 6-week workshops for battle-tested veterans. Come on over. Take a breath. Forgive your acting sins. Take six weeks to rejuvenate your work.
For the past little while I've been preparing Eyeline, a podcast where my actor guests bare all and let us in on how they approach their work. I'll be talking to everyone from Oscar nominees and series regulars to those who've had enough and gotten out of the game -- it's all about the inside scoop on the struggle to act well.
Come on over to eyelinepodcast.com for more.
This short I directed and edited was featured on the front page of Funny or Die and is currently on the festival circuit. The list of hilarious people in this never ends.

I directed and co-produced I Made Out With Him Anyway, a cabaret-style bonanza about really bad dates. Written by and starring Kirstin Eggers and Evie Peck, IMOWHA was featured in Daily Candy, LA WEEKLY, LAist and had successful runs at Sacred Fools Theater, The Lost Theater and King King in Hollywood. We followed the theater run with a web series, and Kirstin and Evie developed a pilot based on the show with ABC.
I directed a series of web shorts (hosted on blip.tv) inspired by the live version of I Made Out With Him Anyway. We asked our audience to submit their own stories of dates gone awry. Then we re-enacted them.
Starring: Katie Lowes (Scandal), Karina Logue (Argo), Adam Paul (How I Met Your Mother) , Mitchell Fink (Mad Men) , Chris Wood (Friends with Benefits), John Newton (Desperate Housewives), Shelley Dowdy ( Evan Almighty), Kaitlyn Samovar and Brian Drolet (2 Dudes and a Dream)

This is an infomercial I made about... well... myself. Specifically about how awesome I am.
I directed the ridiculous Jake Fleisher in this short he wrote that was featured all over the place.
