My directorial debut "SCARE ME" starring Aya Cash, Chris Redd, & myself premiered at Sundance 2020 and drops on SHUDDER October 1, 2020! I just wrapped production on my 2nd movie - "WEREWOLVES WITHIN" - a horror/comedy from Ubisoft Film & Television, starring Sam Richardson and the most incredible ensemble ever assembled. I also directed (and cameo) in all 10 episodes of Spotify & Funny or Die's "THE LAST DEGREE OF KEVIN BACON" (out now!). Here's me on set looking extremely serious:

mindhouse podcast

Great guests and funny voices with Josh Ruben. The Mindhouse Podcast is kind of like “WTF” but less articulate. I've put it on hold to focus on other projects for now, but can't wait to pick it back up again... Intro track by my sister, Rachael Yamagata!
