My creative community is based in Madison, Wisconsin and includes gifted actors, visual artists, directors, writers and comedians. I collaborate with clients and other creatives both locally and over long distances. Here is my ongoing show with Matt Sloan and Craig Johnson, Welcome to the Basement, and here is the Chad Vader series by Blame Society Productions, where I contributed cinematography and production design.
