Very honored to have been selected for Shoot Magazine's New Directors Showcase, which was held at the Directors Guild of America Theater in New York City. Go here for the li'l write-up. I'm also represented by Seed Media Arts now. Check out their site when you get a chance. A big thank you to Roy Skillicorn, the man with a plan.

Here's a very kind interview with Teme Ring from ChicagoNow:
Most New Year’s resolutions are unappealing, but this year I can’t resist. Fighter-trainer Kurt Grasa (oops, don’t look up what his last name means in Spanish) promises to make me “an all-around whole participant on this planet” in five minutes a day with his just released “Mixed Life Arts” program. His methods are somewhat unusual. I may need a gun permit and a pre-cut avocado. But his sincerity, his fit 6’5” frame, his expert bobbing and weaving … Hey, wait a minute. Who is this guy?

Happy New Year! Start on your resolution with this new life-changing workout program.
Jan. 9th 7pm come to Stage 773 to see The Paul Thomas Effort at Chicago Sketchfest. It is fun. I will have some special guests, so it's not just my pretty large face. Here's the ticket link. You can save a few bucks with an early purchase.
I'll also be at San Francisco Sketchfest Feb. 5th and 6th. You will probably not go to this because you don't live in San Francisco, but I thought you should know, because it will be very fun.
Check out the new short from our Sit For Glory sketch pilot. With Katy Colloton, DAnny Mulae, and me. Produced by Chad Wilson and shot by Jason Beaumont.
A picture is worth a couple bucks, but here's the nutty grutty. Chad Wilson and I screening some our work to celebrate our new venture Hardtryer Entertainment, a comedy content and development company. Cocktail hour at 7 and screening at 8. Tix are $5 in advance here: http://hardtryer.brownpapertickets.com/
