One of the New generation movie riffers.  A bit of Google searching reveals the interesting doings and coincidences that led to him being at Legend.  In 2002 he was co-creator of National High Five Day.  In 2006, a Legend Films producer, for terms like "4/20 national high" shortly prior to their release of colorized Reefer Madness including Michael J. Nelson commentary, ran across the site and sent him an email.  He replied and asked if Legend had any openings.  The answer was no, but he sent his resume anyway, along with video he'd created a few days before, combining real commentary from a famous inning of baseball with an NES RBI Baseball recreation of the action.  impressed the folks at Legend enough to in fact make him a job offer that day, as "a production assistant in charge of guerrilla marketing at Legend".  A couple more days later, and he's promotion a Reefer Madness giveaway contest back at his blog.  As time went on his job evolved, and eventually he became one of the primary RiffTrax writers alongside Mike, Kevin, and Bill.
