How the heck did you end up working for Attack of the Show?

It’s a long story than no one really wants to hear. Think your eighth-grade history textbook with a couple promotions thrown in and you get the idea.

What's your primary duty on AOTS?

I try to make things better. Like if there’s an idea involving rainbows I’m all like "How about electric neon rainbows?" Usually it works out. I also spend a good part of my day talking to the legal department to try to get approval for stuff done we want to get to do.

What's the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done in the name of AOTS?

I not only approved the SAQ package but I had a part in its conception as well.

What does the phrase “Attack of the Show” mean to you?

It certainly doesn’t mean giant robots or ants attacking a 1950s Tokyo (not that there’s anything wrong with that). To me, it means that this is not the usual show. It’s interested in changing the conventions and sensibilities of what we think of as TV. Essentially, it is "attacking" the former paradigm. When I first heard the name, I wasn’t a huge fan. Now I absolutely love it. Mad props to Segment Producer Mike Shaw for coming up with it and singing its praises to the high heavens.
