Sketch Comedy
 

Adrian started writing sketch comedy in 2005 while living in New York. He and Devin Katayama formed the duo High Socks, which produced a full-length, sketch album as well as a handful of videos.

Adrian moved to San Francisco two years later and continued to produce videos with the help of actor Eleni Giannis, comedian Rachel Rockwood, editor Jimmy Lillard and comedian/editor/musician Michael Sanchez, to name a few.

Here is a collection of some of his work to date.
