MAX RIDDLE is a half hour demo pilot that I co-wrote, co-directed, filmed, and edited. Max Riddle is the story of a dying American town and the resilient people who live there, told through the magnified eyes of a good-hearted but awkward hero with bottle glasses and a head too small for his teeth, who just lost his job to a robot. Winner, Best Actor in a Drama, New York Television Festival. Play the video above to watch scenes from the demo pilot.

I play Donny Smoczyk in GREG AND DONNY, a comedy about two knuckleheads in Western PA. Created, written by and starring my writing partner Jeff Skowron and I, GREG AND DONNY began as a video sketch that we shot on our computers from across the country. Fans responded immediately, and we turned it into a webseries, which culminated in a 6-minute pilot that won IFC's 'Out of the Box' award at the New York Television Festival. The show was developed into a half-hour sitcom by IFC and greenlit to pilot, which was directed by Troy Miller (THE OFFICE, PARKS & RECREATION), and produced by Dakota Pictures.

The video above is the first episode of the second season of the webseries, which debuted to 200,000 views in the first 24 hours. Here’s a nice article about us on Pajiba, written by Kristy Puchko, who spent a day with us on set: Yinz Gather Round: Greg & Donny Parodies 'It's a Wonderful Life'

I played 'Xander' on THE BURG, which was the first breakout webseries. Written by me and Thom Woodley (who co-created with Kathleen Grace), THE BURG debuted to widespread media coverage in publications including USA Today, New York Magazine, Gawker, The Huffington Post, The New York Post, Wired, PC World, Paper Magazine's Beautiful People issue, and was compared favorably to ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT in the New York Times. The final episode was directed by Peter Sollett (FREEHELD, THE PATH, NICK AND NORAH’S INFINITE PLAYLIST). The above video is an episode I wrote, described by Gawker as a “typically fantastic Burg episode.”
