I am the Creator/Executive Producer/Showrunner of the FX original comedy series "You're The Worst," which debuted in July 2014. Here's what critics said:

 “Is the old-fashioned rom-com dead? If so, blame FX. This summer, the network debuted You’re the Worst, a dirty, shameful comedy about hate-shagging that also happens to be one of the best new shows on TV. Its depiction of blasé thirtysomethings in heat (Chris Geere and Aya Cash) could not feel more of-the-moment.” -ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

“Cheers to You’re The Worst for being the best comedy you’re not watching. Crude, clever, and featuring a terrific ensemble cast, FX’s sleeper starring Chris Geere – about the nastiest friends this side of The League – closed out season 1 with a perfectly awkward bbq that left us hungry for so much more.” -TV GUIDE

“Then came You’re the Worst, a new sitcom on FX, to make me fall in love all over again by reinventing the form entirely, merging it, miraculously, with romantic comedy.” -NEW YORKER

“Looking for a comedy that's actually funny? Want one with precisely calibrated yet organically complex characters? Want to watch a well-constructed story full of wit that is equal parts scathing, smart and silly?...If you want to do more than merely tolerate a comedy -- in other words, if you want to fall in love with one -- try binging on FX's "You're the Worst," ” -HUFFINGTON POST

“You're the Worst was not an obvious frontrunner for best new show of the summer right out of the gate, but it quickly became just that. The new FX comedy that wasn't Married, the one without all the recognizable stars, became a must-see show after only a few viewings. (And it's not just must-see for me: It's the only show that my sister, my best guy friend, and my mother-in-law can all agree is ‘hysterical’)” -YAHOO TV

“WINNER: You’re the Worst, WINNER: Chris Geere and Aya Cash, WINNER: Chemistry, WINNER: All of Us. Am I overdoing it? Perhaps. But no comedy in recent memory has filled me with happiness like You’re the Worst.” -GRANTLAND

"You're The Worst" was picked up for a second season (Summer 2015). The Hollywood Reporter named me "Showrunner To Watch For 2015" in its October 2014 "Power Showrunner" issue.

I recently served as Co-Executive Producer of Netflix's original drama series "Orange Is The New Black" and am writing an hour pilot for Fox TV Studios. Previously, I served as Co-Executive Producer on Showtime's "Weeds". In 2012 was the Creator/Executive Producer/Showrunner of a half-hour single-cam comedy series for NBC called "Next Caller."

I graduated from NYU with a BFA in Acting, which I put to use mostly in plays, shorts, and independent films; you can find bits of my "work" here and there if you look hard enough. But mostly I write. I've written feature films for Fox, Dimension, Universal and television pilots for Showtime, ABC, USA, Fox, SyFy, NBC, WB (RIP).

I received a 2012 Writers Guild Awards nomination for Episodic Comedy for writing an episode of Weeds called, "Object Impermanence."

Additionally I am the author of numerous plays and two novels. I used to recap reality shows for the formerly-great Television Without Pity and currently maintain a blog and a Twitter.

I co-produce and sometimes host/perform in a popular monthly storytelling series at M Bar in Hollywood called Public School.

My comedy group Film Pigs have been making themselves and a few other people laugh for almost a decade now, formerly with stage shows, now with vlogs and podcasts and a weekly webshow *click here* on Geek Nation. You can subscribe to the podcast here. It's a podcast about movies.

I take photos, mostly of my dog and things I find on the street, which can be found on Instagram and Flickr.

I live in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, where there are good bars and you can often see Michael Cera and the chick from Revenge. You should come by.
