About

I'm a writer/producer/director who makes innovative programming for digital and linear media. I'm currently the showrunner of PBS Space Time and PBS Infinite Series, two series that present challenging, educational content in accessible and exciting ways. We talk about things

like dark energy, quantum erasure and hyperspheres. By the end of each video your brain will feel the burn but you'll definitely enjoy the work out.

 

Prior to working with PBS I was the creator and host of Science Friction, a web series that breaks down the real science behind comic book and sci-fi superpowers and shows people how they can become superhuman. The series has been viewed over 11 million times, and is used by universities to teach students about the latest advancements in science and technology.   

 

I also created the Anglophenia web series for BBC America. We taught people how to swear like a proper Brit and discussed important issues like whether the pouch you buckle around your waist is called a "fanny pack" or a "bum bag." The series went immediately viral and received critical acclaim for its intelligence and humor.  

 

I've made a lot of other videos for companies like Nickelodeon, TruTV, Google and Condé Nast. Some of these you can check out here.  

My career in new media started in 2007, as the head writer for BarelyPolitical.com. We made over a hundred comedy videos that took aim at politics, pop-culture and the media. Barely Political's remixes, sketches and music videos regularly went viral and repeatedly attracted the attention of both new and traditional media outlets. I made a video called Bill O'Reilly's Producer that won two Webby's. Bill O'Reilly didn't like it.

When I'm not working I write and host my own Lovecraftian murder mystery parties and make RPGs for my five-year-old about mischievous witches and bossy badgers.
