Born, bred, and cornfed in LeMars, Iowa, I went on to study at The University of Iowa. During my time there I had several full length plays produced by the University as well as two ten minute plays published by Heuer Publishing, which are frequently performed year round across the country.
I moved to LA in the summer of 2007 and have been writing diligently ever since, expanding into screenplays, television specs, and online sketches.
My 12 part web series SPINNERS was an official selection in the 2011 LA Web Fest and has a dedicated page on IMDB.com. I co-founded the comedy site BurgessTV and continue to produce and upload new content, using as it outlet for other sketches, including INNERDATE, DEXTER KILLS SNOOKI, BETTER OFF UNDEAD, and the latest, CLOWNISM.
I’m currently working on a TV pilot and a full length play I hope to get published by the end of the year. Eventually I’ll get to writing that Novel that’s just sitting around in outline form, judging me.
When I’m not writing or working, I enjoy catching up on my DVR, cheering on the Hawkeyes, and spending time with my lovely wife.
