Tomorrow THREE HOURS is going to be read aloud for the first time, with some of Chicago’s best actors. This will be the first time it says its name, and breathes its first breath. It’s a remarkable thing, filmmaking. Thank you to @prcasting , @sagaftra Chicago, @hollihop @shelleygusto , @girlsgotta , @chifilmfest , and the other members of this village helping to raise it.

Oh hey, you made it to the bottom.  You're a reader, and I like that about you.

Here's a little about me in text form.

I'm from Chicago and New York, but now I live in LA.

I came up at Second City, iO and Annoyance writing and performing improv and sketch comedy.

One day, I wrote a 23 page sketch that was more sad than funny, and realized I was making a short film.

I looked around for someone to direct it, and no one would.

My good friends convinced me to direct it myself.

I went to festivals, won some laurels, and made four more films.

And now, here we are together, you and I.
