while he was having a particularly tough time in math class. Suddenly he wasn't so sure that he wanted to be a rocket scientist when he grew up. He decided that the only thing more interesting than real physics was Hollywood physics, and like many young men who came of age with cheap video cameras, ended up at Wesleyan studying film. After a brief stint in China and a season selling apartments in Manhattan, he met Nick over a Chicken Parmesan sandwich and joined the Other Months
family. He's always liked building things, whether handmade lamps or business models, and currently resides on the left coast.

Jenny Hsiao Production Designer
Jenny Hsiao has been looking out of windows and subconsciously measuring distances between windows and views and the viewer herself, measuring without particular reason always how light hits a slanting wall and how these walls delineate a space and how much air it takes to fill it—winding through long corridors and careful at the turning of corners. Jenny studies the arrangement of space at architecture/art school at Cooper Union in New York City. She understands less so the arrangement of time, and gets lost in the flux of moving images of film—but it is a good feeling.
