Your Yoshirt collection in a nutshell?

They’re my face patterned in this crazy way.

How long have you been making Vines?

I downloaded the app the day it came out, but I didn’t really get it at first. It wasn’t until a few months later that I got more and more into the content other people were making. I started to make my own. That's when I realized it was actually really fun.

What’s it like when you’re making a Vine? Take us behind the scenes.

It’s spur of the moment. A lot of people plan them and shoot them and direct them. They have producers and all that. I just do them on the way to work when I have a stupid idea.

What’s a day in your life like?

Wake up, go for a run, go to work, come home, eat dinner, go to bed. I make my Vines when I’m alone in the car.

What kind of car do you drive?

A G-Wagen. No, it’s a Porsche—a black Porsche. You can tell everyone that I drive a really nice black Porsche. Really, it’s a Mazda 3. It is black though.

What inspires you?

I really like design firms that develop an aesthetic and maintain it. It’s inspiring to see someone create their own style and never jeopardize it. On Vine, there’s Evan Breen, Logey Dogey, Josh Kennedy, Dante Smith, Nick Collette. They’re all just really funny, genuine dudes.

What makes your skin crawl?

The word viner. I hate that word.

What keeps you going?

It’s cool to be capable of making stuff that a lot of people can laugh at. I just want to keep making people laugh. If I can keep doing that, it’s worth it.

What’s next for you?

I’ve started booking some live shows; they’re a mix of standup and sketch comedy. There are so many comedians I love — T.J. Miller, Hannibal Buress, Nick Fineman — and they’re the reason I want to do live comedy.
