I somehow became a bestselling author at age 21, when I penned a bestseller with two Stanford classmates. After college I joined CNN, then launched several media ventures. My current company, Filmateria Studios, develops media for major brands, including Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Zillow, and LinkedIn. I have written, produced, and directed for talent ranging from astronaut Buzz Aldrin to actor Ed Helms to Bill Nye, the Science Guy. I led a team that created the YouTube kids’ series Team Marco Polo. My writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and Glamour. I live in Seattle with my wife, Marisa. My three kids all write, produce, and make people laugh in LA, New York and Seattle.
