Personal Quote:

Being an actor really, really strengthens me as a director. There's just a certain type of understanding that comes from having been there and knowing how much is really being asked of actors that helps me. See more »

Trivia:

Got his start as a still photographer. He directed the title sequence of Napoleon Dynamite (2004). He also directed the hilarious Powerade commercial showing the Amish drag race between two hay bale-carrying, horse-drawn carts. The commercial was pulled from the air due to a lawsuit between Pepsi (which owns Gatorade) and Coca-Cola (which owns Powerade). Coke settled out of court. See more »
