I work to make the internet funnier and videogame discussion smarter. I've spent my career working at the videogame company Nintendo and the internet humor network Cheezburger.

This is where I keep the stuff I make. I also have a Twitter and a Tumblr. Thanks for stopping by.

  • Title: “Sunset Overdrive E3 Mural”
    Release Date: June 2013
    Client: SA Studios/Insomniac Games/Microsoft
    Primary Duties: Director, Camera, Editor

    This is a video I shot and cut for marketing company SA Studios for Insomniac/Microsoft’s new X-Box One game “Sunset Overdrive.” It’s behind the scenes of a mural painting for the game at Meltdown Comics. The mural was produced as part of a scavenger hunt timed with the announcement of the game at E3.

    I shot this with my Canon T3i and a GoPro for the time-lapse. It was a lot of fun to work with the street artists and the guys at SA Studios.

  • Title: “Glass Half Horse”
    Released: August 2012
    Primary Duties: Co-Writer, Co-Director, Voice-Over, Editor, Camera

    I shot this film over the course of two days in my hometown of Shelton, Washington. I had drunkenly ordered one of those horse masks late one night, and wanted to do something with it. My writing partner and I brainstormed a bunch of scenes, concepts, and one-liners, then we filmed everything we could think of. We had a skeleton of a story, but the details were born in the editing room.

    I am currently in post-production on a follow-up, done in the same style.

  • Title: Meltdown Flashback - Grant Morrison Interview - Free Comic Book Day 2012
    Release Date: April 2013
    Primary Duties: Director, Editor, Camera

    This interview was originally filmed as part of an unreleased pilot for a Meltdown Comics web show that I was directing. A year later, I shot a new intro for it and released it as a promotion for their Free Comic Book Day.

    Not included in this clip is when Grant Morrison recorded a clip for my roommate’s alarm clock saying, “Wake up, Katherine. WAKE UP!”

  • Title: “Meltdown Flashback - Guillermo del Toro Interview - Free Comic Day 2012”
    Release Date: April 2013
    Primary Duties: Director, Camera, Editor

    This interview was originally filmed as part of an unreleased pilot for a Meltdown Comics web show that I was directing. A year later, I shot a new intro for it and released it as a promotion for their Free Comic Book Day.

    After the cameras were off, I talked to Guillermo about that Insane game he was working on, obviously. 

  • Title: “John Roy Stand-Up Comedy - Ed Brubaker and Bucky Barnes”
    Release Date: April 2012
    Primary Duties: Camera, Editor, Special Effects

    I did a lot of coverage for the Avengers vs X-Men event for Meltdown Comics, and this is a highlight. Stand-Up comic John Roy asked me to upload this comic-themed set. I did a little extra work and added the comic-strip titles/framing, which still makes me smile.

  • Title: 35 Days of Kevin Eastman at Meltdown Comics - TMNT Mural
    Release Date: November 2011
    Primary Duties: Camera, Editor

    I shot and cut this piece for Meltdown Comics to show the behind the scenes work that went into making their TMNT mural. It was really cool to spend a few days with Ninja Turtles creator Kevin Eastman and graffiti artist Mark Bode.

  • Title: “Exclusive look at New Era / Marvel Avengers vs X-Men Cap”
    Release Date: March 2012
    Primary Duties: Director, Editor, Camera

    I shot and cut this promo for an event at Meltdown Comics. The turnaround from knowing I needed to do it to delivering it was like six hours, and I’m real happy with how it turned out.

  • Title: “Dear Videogames - Final Fantasy 13”
    Release Date: February 2013
    Primary Duties: Director, Writer, Actor, Editor

    In this new series, I write open-letters to videogames. The goal was to be concise but thoughtful, made quickly but with good production value. I was looking to exchange some of the comedy of my older videos to provide more thoughtful critique.

    More of this series can be seen on its own site: Dear Videogames

  • Title: “Gears of War 3 Epic Edition Unboxing”
    Release Date: September 2011
    Primary Duties: Director, Actor, Editor

    I received an advanced copy of the super special edition Gears of War 3 box, and created this unboxing video.

  • Title: “The Indoor Kids - Kumail Teaches a 5-Year-Old to Play Marvel vs Capcom 2”
    Release Date: September 2011
    Primary Duties: Director, Camera, Editor

    I shot this video impromptu at an event at Meltdown Comics with comedian Kumail Nanjiani. It was screened for a packed house at Kumail’s weekly comedy show, right after Louis C.K. got off stage.

    I keep telling my parents how cool this is, but I don’t think they get it.
