I’d like to thank my parents and wife and, of course, God,  my mailman and local deli guy for making this possible. If you haven’t yet read my super cool comedy pilot now’s the perfect time to check it out!

The Factory

At New York City’s Lorenzo Studios art is a business. And in this single camera workplace comedy tough yet talented studio owner Vincent Lorenzo lords over and parties with a group of eccentric artists, models and minor celebrities including: Gloria a newly sober fashion photog, Jim a failed TV writer turned blogger and Claire a sexy young designer. But, when a massive debt forces Vincent to seek help from a mobbed up old friend, he just might lose everything.   theFactory

Thunderstorm Sunset

I can’t figure out if Thunderstorm Sunset is a  better name for a heavy metal band that only plays retirement communities or a retirement community for heavy metal bands. Either way this was pretty. photo 2photo 1

Read My New TV Pilot!

After several months of  weekend writing,  late night writing, rewriting, ripping up, going on White Out benders, sobering up and rewriting again comes my pilot for a new TV series called The Factory. It’s a workplace comedy that’s set in a NYC photo studio. Find the full  log line below, and if you’re really adventurous you can read the whole darn thing. It’s only 37 pages, you can do it… if you’re pure of heart and not pure of doodie, of course. Enjoy!

Me Man

I was just reading up on how Barbie doll bodies are so out of whack with what real women look like. Which is pretty messed up. It’s a good thing male dolls are so in tune with my own physique.review_motuc1_1

Consider Henry Regarded

For some reason a lengthy and thorough discussion of Regarding Henry — which was written by JJ Abrams by the by — broke out in my office. These pictures were Googled and I think speak for themselves.Unknownregarding-henry

Kanye cheated on Kim!!!

Check out my appearance on OMG Insider where I discuss the delicate politics of Sunni and Shia in Iraq… JK! I actually chime in on Star’s story about Kayne West cheating on Kim Kardashian with a French Canadian model. If you look closely in my eyes you may see yourself as they’re quite glassy. But in my defense I found out about the appearance a half hour before I was taped, not the night before when I had a few scotches during dinner. Enjoy!
