His absurdist feature film ADVENTURES OF POWER, in which he starred alongside Jane Lynch, Michael McKean and Adrian Grenier, premiered at Sundance and won best-of-festival prizes at eight film festivals. It was the audience’s top-rated comedy at the Karlovy-Vary International Film Festival and was called “one of the funniest films in recent years” by New York Magazine.
