Where are you from and what inspired you to become a television writer?

I’m from Greensburg, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh. Whether it was “Seinfeld” or “The Wire” or “Voltron: Defender of the Universe,” great television has always entertained, challenged, enthralled and inspired me. I want to do the same for the next generation of unfocused slackers.

What Spec did you write to get into the workshop?

Better Off Ted

Who is your all time favorite television character and why?

Ted Lawson from “Small Wonder” because he reminds me of a simpler time, a time when a man could build a female teenage robot without being questioned, divorced or arrested.
