He moved to Los Angeles five years ago and slept on a popped air mattress for the first year and a half.

He got his start working as a production assistant on LOST, Parks and Recreation, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Suburgatory and Up All Night, and as a Writers Assistant on Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. He just wrapped as Script Coordinator on Cristela.
