Ted is a filmmaker originally from central Virginia, now based in Brooklyn, NY. At Hampshire College he created a full-length play that experimented with projection design as a narrative element. Since graduating, he relocated to New York and transitioned from theatre to working in film and TV as a director, writer, and producer.
In 2015, he worked on Dustin Guy Defa's Person to Person which went to Sundance and, in 2016, worked on Josephine Decker’s Movie #1. Most recently, his directing credits include two music videos for Josh the Word (Mixtape and Fall In), one of which was featured on Nowness, Rachel Lark’s Warm, Bloody, and Tender featuring Dan Savage, and numerous narrative short films. Two years ago, under the banner of Hustlemilk, Ted spent time on a farm along with two other members of his filmmaking collective, OFCLOUDS, creating a self-styled residency where every piece of content was shot on the property.
Two of his scripts were finalists with the David Ross Fetzer Foundation one of which, Fake Harry, was co-written with his writing partner Ben Wright Smith. Currently, he and Ben are writing, directing, and producing the series The Pioneers, which won “Best Writing” at the Brooklyn Web Fest and was nominated for “Best Comedy” and “Best Directing” at the Indie Series Awards 2017.
