Paul F. Tompkins: Laboring Under Delusions
Paul wanted to base the photo for his new album from There Will Be Blood. From there I laid out his album content and CD. It was an honor to be able to combine my powers of graphic design with my love of comedy photography.

Thrilling Adventure Hour
A monthly show at Largo in Los Angeles. I first saw this show at SF Sketchfest on assignment. I didn't understand what I was watching, but the audience was insanely enthusiastic about it.
When Acker & Blacker invited me to photograph the show back in Los Angeles, I slowly caught on to the nuances (and crazy surprise guests) that have garnered them a rabid following.

Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
I started attending shows in 2007. Shortly thereafter, my office got a new camera and I learned to use it by documenting every show I attended. As a result, I have an archive of over 20,000 photos. I'm currently on call by the theatre management and performers to photograph shows as needed for press.
