WILDsound Festival

Born: December 30, 1940 in Los Angeles, California, USA

I’ll tell you what I love about directing: the surprise. You never know what’s going to happen with your piece until an audience weighs in. You may think that you know what will be funny as shit but then a group of bused-in Middle Americans says is is shit and you’re shaking your head in dismay. This surprise I find exhilarating and scary–and I love it.

Has directed over 30 Pilots for TV.
