I'm a car salesman who makes music videos on my iPhone. I can't sing, dance, or play an instrument so I make cool videos. Currently I'm directing a lyric video, illustrating a children's book, writing a feature film, and eating an avocado.

Thanks for being here Jesiah! How has your schooling in theological/biblical studies informed the work you do as a car salesman, a filmmaker, an avocado eater?

What do you think of Pingu? And why does the academy continue to snub it?

What is the role of feedback for your videos? Open mic comedians feed on the energy of the crowd, but online videos get all sorts of noise.

As a stop motion artist, how much of your inspiration do you credit to Pingu? And why does the Academy continue to snub it?
