April 5, 2023— My 7th intro sequence for the Nostalgia Critic web show has been released with the Critic’s review of Despicable Me and the Minions movies.
This intro is in the style of a classic arcade fighting game’s menu, with each cast member as a selectable character.
January 19, 2023— The live mobile game show app HQ Trivia was taken over by a bunch of fans of the app some days prior in the hopes of producing new episodes of Trivia and Words. They were looking for a host, and I signed up. On the night of the 19th, I set up a production studio in my apartment and hosted an episode of HQ Trivia that was seen and played directly on the app- complete with graphic design, music, and even cash winnings. As a fan of the show myself, this was a real treat. The fan response to my hosting was overwhelmingly positive. The video can be seen below.
We were set up to do a game of HQ Words on January 23, but the people who own the HQ app took back control, and I couldn’t host anymore. Aside from this fan takeover, the app had been dormant for months. If the app becomes entirely defunct, it would be quite possible that I will have been the last host of HQ Trivia.

Acting and On-Screen Performance The camera likes me.
Trained by Chelltoine Productions and McKay Arts for on-screen acting, I’ve been on-camera for many productions.
You can see me in movies like Jesus, Bro! and Another Cinema Snob Movie.
I also have the distinction as being the last host (kinda) of the live mobile trivia game HQ Trivia.
In online media, I was the co-lead on the ClickHole video 500 lb. Man, where I played one of the “two 250 lb. men” that the 500 lb. man split into.
The video has garnered over a million views on YouTube, three million views on Twitter, and fourteen million views on Facebook.
Additionally, I am a part of the ensemble for the Nostalgia Critic web series and have made several guest appearances in the web series Atop the Fourth Wall. I have also co-starred and wrote questions for the online game show Pop Quiz Hot Shot.
As a background actor, I can be found in TV shows, including South Side on HBO Max, and the Quantum Leap reboot on NBC.
I’m currently non-union, and I am currently seeking theatrical/commercial representation in Los Angeles.

Motion Graphics & Video Editing Over 25 years of experience.
I’ve always had a strong interest in motion graphics and title sequences for television and film.
When I was 17, I animated my first computer-generated sequence commemorating the 25th anniversary of Atari. That was followed up two years later with an animation commemorating the 5th anniversary of the Atari Jaguar that was shown at the Classic Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, and it was later the subject of a humorous story on the Chicago morning TV show Fox Thing In The Morning.
At 23, I worked as an animator for VisualCast, where I became familiar with working with After Effects. My work for them was shown on huge video billboards across the Chicago area.
Since then, I’ve produced animations for commercials and title sequences that have been shown on many platforms. I’ve also designed logos— including the logos for Chicago Movieoke and The Twin Towers Alliance. For the last several years, I’ve been the animator of the intro sequences to the Nostalgia Critic web series and the logo animation for Channel Awesome. Most recently, I animated and designed the 80s-era TV graphics for the analog horror series Winter of ’83.

World's Best Laugh I've got BLE: Big Laugh Energy.
I have a distinct and ebullient Laugh that has been a welcomed sound for comedians, show producers, and TV audience coordinators.
The Laugh is heard in over a dozen comedy albums and specials– including:
- Fake News, Real Jokes by Dennis Miller
- Tell the Damn Joke and The Last Late Night by Steve Byrne
- I Didn’t Say Anything Bad by Joe Kilgallon
- White Noise by Sam Norton (the first 360° VR comedy special)
- Nick and Sheila’s Kid by Prateek Srivastava
- Dead and Gone by Sean White
- Mother. F***er. by Kristen Toomey
I am working on delivering the Laugh to more comedy specials and television series audiences in the Los Angeles area. If you are a studio audience coordinator, casting company, warm-up comic, or comedy album/special producer looking to add a little “natural sweetener” to your audience responses, feel free to contact me.
