He is happiest making messes, collaborating, dreaming up stories, and exploring the human condition.
My primary goal is to impact the world with bold, playful, and creative stories that remind us we’re all human - capable of great triumph, failure, cruelty, and love. I lead with empathy and want my stories to be catalysts for compassion in the world.
Hope is abundant and inspiration surrounds us!
Fitted with a mischievous imagination and fascination for human behavior...
I love exploring heightened poetic spaces and have an affinity for the super stupid and deeply profound. I play with reckless abandon, follow joy and my offbeat sense of humor while remaining curious about what unlocks moments of authentic truth and connection.
"An impeccable knack for physical comedy."
"Enduring and a joy to watch."
"Scarily good, both entertaining and unhinged."
"Goes from brash womanizer to impish angel with equal aplomb and humor."
"Garegnani proved that a well-rounded ensemble can really make or break a show."

My stories are playful, engaging, and filled with interesting characters.
We are complicated, beautiful messes and sharing stories is how we connect to the world around us. I see the world in cinematic moments and intimate scenes. I write about loneliness a lot – the hunger for connection and the desire to be seen. I identify with rebels, outcasts, and individuals that set out on journeys of self-acceptance and discovery on this scary painful planet.
Lonely artist Larz dreams of commercial success. The only problem is he’s creatively blocked and hates every line he draws. When tasked with designing the title character for a new children’s book ‘The Fairy with No Wings,’ he steps out of a neurotic routine and pushes himself to a much-needed breakthrough. Like, literally -- his character breaks through the page and comes to life in the form of a three-dimensional, flesh and blood woman named Scribbles. Larz struggles to control his mischievous creation as she flips his world upside down in an attempt to help him rediscover his artistic voice by confronting the skeletons in his closet.
