Eric and Jared met as rival filmmakers back in high school.  Like smart businessmen, they decided to combine forces and create films together. By age 17, they were making epic (relatively speaking) feature films.

They both met Darrin Scane while attending USC.  The three soon learned that they all shared a twisted sense of humor, and desire to express themselves creatively through the medium of film.

Jared went to New York to hone his skills as a director, while Eric and Darrin immediately began working in the industry.  Upon being reunited, they produced the short film, “Daddy’s Best Buddy”, which became an internet sensation on iFilm, garnering more than 100,000 views (back when that number used to mean something).

And upon that successful venture,  Engenius Productions was born.

Eric received his BA from the University of Southern California.

For the past several years, he has been a project manager for one of the

country’s leading live video uplink companies, PSSI Global Services.
