I was born in Baltimore, Maryland. After getting my BFA in Painting at the Maryland Institute College of Art, I decided to pursue my MFA in film at The University of Illinois in Chicago. I made many shorts and 3 feature films which played film festivals around the world and received video distribution by Ariztical Entertainment and Water Bearer Films. In 2009, I moved to Los Angeles where I have had active roles performing and writing at The iO West Comedy Club, The Groundlings Comedy Theater, and The Second City Comedy Theater. At that time I also founded a comedy youtube page under the name of Evil Jeff which has garnered millions of views. Since 2011, I have been the creative director and head editor at Belator LLC, where I have edited hundreds of online promos and videos for the world wide web. Most recently I worked for Make Fresh Production working on projects for IBM and editing episodes of TechKnow, a science program on the Al Jazeera Network.
