Jeff always wanted to be a superhero. But since he doesn't have any superpowers (except the power to be super-geeky) he decided to make a web series about superheroes and villains instead. He first got the film bug in college where he and his friends improv-ed an entire movie for fun (when they weren't studying of course). The film was about an evil twin, pimps, and Darth Vader. Deciding to make more professional and less ridiculous sounding films, Jeff made his first real short after grad school, even though he had no idea what he was doing. Several short films later, his films have screened on PBS and at festivals throughout the northeast. When he's not making films, Jeff tutors high school students and is co-founder of Dyslexia Consultants where he helps learning-disabled high school students improve their writing and critical reasoning skills. Jeff ‘s current project, Super Knocked Up, has been viewed over 1.3 million times in its first few months of release. Jeff is having a blast shooting the series with his amazing cast and crew! He especially enjoys it when Jourdan says he smells bad, Mark threatens to quit every shoot, and Yvonne tells him his clothes are so ratty they should be thrown out. Super Knocked Up is based on Jeff's actual life. Okay, not really. But he would really like to date a hot super-villain!
