1. What project(s) are you most excited about working on right now and why?
I write and host my own show on GameTrailers called “The Final Bosman,” (http://www.gametrailers.com/shows/the-final-bosman) and on this show I get to do whatever I want for some reason. Every week I can talk about video games and act like my truest, weirdest self, and I’m grateful to have an audience who likes my stupid tomfoolery.
2. What is a favorite hobby /pastime / interest you enjoy outside of the office?
I write sketch comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. Reading “lol” in the comments is nice, but hearing a live audience laugh at your jokes is a whole other feeling.
3. What is one show you watch on TV (or digital) that you love and one you can’t stand (but watch anyway)?
I love Brooklyn 99 this year; every character is uniquely funny. As for hate-watching, no question it’s Mulaney. There are so many great shows I could watch every week, but I keep coming back to Mulaney. I just sit there and frown the entire time, occasionally driven to shake my head in shame. It’s a real problem for me. Thank you for the opportunity to talk about this.
4. iPhone or Android?
I used to be embarrassed to own an iPhone, but after years of those mean, defensive Samsung/Windows Phone commercials I’ve actually become endeared to it.
5. What is up next for GameTrailers in 2015 that you are excited about?
Next year we’re going to become more invested in live programming, which makes us all nervous and excited. Also there’s going to be a new Zelda.
