Although I'm now primarily a writer and theatre teacher, I spent years as a filmmaker, actor, and comedian. Below are some of the movies & digital shorts I've written & directed, as well as some of my full-length sketch comedy & improv shows as a member of Michinoku Driver & The High Ceilings.

Feature Films

Below is the trailer for Uncommon Law, the first feature film I wrote & directed.  DVDs & Blu-Rays are available in the shop, and digital copies can be purchased on Amazon.

Digital Shorts

I wrote & directed the following videos with my production company, Cold Silver Films. You can see more on YouTube.

Cowboys vs. Aliens vs. Everything
Cowboys & Aliens was an amazing idea for a movie. But we don't think they went far enough.

Sketch Comedy & Improv Shows

Michinoku Driver: 2015 Chicago Sketch Comedy Festival
An all-new show where Brian & John tackle everything from misunderstood undersea predators to prehistoric Renaissance men.

Michinoku Driver presents “Off The Record”
Brian & John take a humorous look at the difficult & defining moments in their lives, exploring themes of love, loss, & disappointment through such skewed lenses as broken bank robbers, lovelorn robots, and lonely zombie hunters.

Michinoku Driver presents “An Even Briefer Misunderstanding of A Brief Understanding of Time”
Brian & John are seekers of knowledge, and it is to this end that they have conceived an ambitious 20 minute condensed version of Stephen Hawking’s “A Brief History of Time.” There’s just one minor setback: They haven’t actually read the book.

The High Ceilings Valentine’s Day Show
Brian, John, & Dax celebrate life, love, and… penguins.
