The film I helped make, Unlovable, garnered some fantastic reviews at its SXSW premiere including Special Jury Recognition! Read the full features below, including a spotlight on director, Suzi Yoonessi, who also directed the Olive and Mocha series.
I had the pleasure of being Burning Man Honorarium, MÚCARO’s Social Media Publicist, while also participating on the fundraising committee, and build crew. This 32 foot owl is the brain child of my good friend and production designer, Nino Alicea as a totem for knowledge.
Congratulations to my “Unlovable” team (Starring: Melissa Leo / John Hawkes, Directed: Suzi Yoonessi, Written: Charlene deGuzman, Sarah Adina Smith and Mark Duplass) who won $10,000 in finishing funds from The Sun Valley Film Festival! Find all the details for the film’s first public showing after the jump.

A video I helped produce in the desert this summer for Betty Black. Part of the shoot took place in this motel with theme rooms where we found a crack pipe in the Cadillac bed. I love this song. Enjoy the video after the break. Check out more of Betty Black’s music at this link.
I had the pleasure of writing and producing a short for FunnyorDie with my directing partner, Suzi Yoonessi, last weekend. The film is a take on the beloved movie, “Troop Beverly Hills,” and takes a reverse look at the subject of Girl Scouts in the hood. We got Tasha Scott from the original “Troop Beverly Hills” to be in it (which was very exciting) and the short stars the hilarious Chris Kattan. Thank you to everyone who participated. The kids were amazing. You can see more pics from the shoot after the jump.
My collaboration with Brett Jackson, I.C.U.P.P., has produced another comedy short called “Hold My Coat.” We shot this on location at the 2014 Youtopia Festival in San Diego. Thank you to everyone at the festival who participated and to Todd Westphal for the camera work. If you like this, please give it a “like” and pass it on to your friends. You can see the full video after the jump.
I was very excited to be able to hang all three owl pieces together last weekend at the Youtopia Festival in San Diego. I’ve been dreaming of a time when they would all be together in the trees and that dream finally came true. A big thank you to the art staff at Youtopia who awarded me my first art grant and to my artist Nino Alicea who helped me to hang the pieces in the trees (by climbing them). You can see a bunch of awesome pictures after the jump.
Brett Jackson and I create content from idea to internet in under 6 hours. The collaboration, I.C.U.P.P. or International Comedy Union Professionals Partnership, has released our newest comedy short, “Hi, Mom!” You can see the full video after the jump. If you think this is funny, give us a like and pass it on to a friend.

My latest short film “Kountry Krock” won the audience choice award at this year’s Seattle Sketch Fest. I’ve also been notified by the festival that I am the only person to have won this award two separate years for two different films; Kountry Krock and Fast Times at Sugar High
On August 14, I was honored to have my second short screened as part of the infamous Flux Series at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, California. Curated by Jonathan and Meg Wells, the night showcases filmmakers from all over the world. We were in good company and for the presentation segment of the evening, co-writer Bryan Irzyk and I performed an original sketch as the stars of the short, Lynn and Jack Hands.
The kids show I wrote for “You Are What You Eat” was successfully funded on Kickstarter! Congrats to Matt Danciger and Mel Metcalfe. Can’t wait to see season 1!
