Then he moved to TV. Like, all of TV. He's logged waaaay too many hours in writers rooms on FAIRLY LEGAL, THE PLAYBOY CLUB, THE SECRET CIRCLE, THE NEW NORMAL and KIRSTIE. And some that never even saw the light of day!

He's well-rounded!

He's an obsessive political junkie, as evidenced by this photo of him with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama (waaaaaaay in the background onstage, but they're basically best friends). Wonkette is his bible and Rachel Maddow is his messiah.

He's been a volunteer at the Trevor Project for over 7 years, and for the past 3 he's led Trevor NextGen, the organization's initiative to spread awareness to and engage LA's young professional community, introducing the Trevor Project to its next generation of volunteers and donors.

He could subsist entirely on nostalgia if he had to.

(And spandex.) Ask him anything about Gilmore Girls, Ally McBeal, Saved by the Bell, Seinfeld, Friends, Election, Out of Sight, Showgirls, The Philadelphia Story or His Girl Friday.
