Beer drinkers like to laugh. What’s the funniest drinking story you can share with us?
When I was a police officer (with the NYPD) I ended up sitting next to some guy, we both recognized each other from somewhere and couldn't figure it out. It turns out I arrested him for shoplifting. 

Who's the coolest person you've had a beer with?
William Forsythe. We met prior to production of our new film The Networker. Not only was I in awe of him as a person, but I also enjoyed all of the amazing stories he shared of his prior experiences.

What is your favorite beer and why?
Goose Island IPA.... nothing better on a hot summer day!

Do you have a favorite (craft) brewery or breweries and why?
Can't necessarily say I have a favorite, but when I am out enjoying a drink with my friends a good craft beer is definitely my go-to choice.

Have you attended any beer events or festivals that you particularly enjoyed? What made them stand out?
Being a New Yorker you have to attend the NYC Craft Beer Festival. Such a good place to kick back with friends and enjoy some beer. This festival brings people with a great vibe... 100% a must attend whether you are from New York or just visiting town!

What projects do you have brewing?
I have The Networker coming out this month which is a romantic comedy that also stars William Forsythe, Stephen Baldwin and Sean Young to name a few in this amazing cast. I also have The Fifth Borough which will be on Netflix. For that, I had the pleasure to work with Vincent Pastore, Cathy Moriarty, Richard Grieco and Vincent Young – again an amazing ensemble cast. In September I will be directing a new horror film starring Ice-T which I am really excited to get started on... it's called Clinton Road.
