Kent Nichols

Kent Nichols

Kent Nichols is a storyteller, technology geek, and goofball. Born a large baby, Kent barely fit inside his mother's womb. He spent his childhood years in Orange County fascinated by ants, caterpillars, and video games. During high school and college he had a lot of potential, but always fell short on his report card. Kent relied on his charm, street smarts, and likeability to coast through.

Things changed in 2000 when Kent dropped out of college and dedicated his life to comedy. He spent every waking moment studying filmmaking and the craft of comedy and he learned how to make funny movies with only his friends, an iMac, and a MiniDV camera. In 2003, his film, Baggage, won the International 48 Hour Film Project and Scott Billups called him “the future of the Entertainment industry” in his book Digital Moviemaking. In 2005, Kent, along with writing partner Douglas Sarine, created the internet sensation AskANinja.com, which has been viewed over 20 million times. In 2006, Douglas and Kent created HopeIsEmo.com, one of the most viewed and discussed series on the web. His forthcoming cartoon, Kinzai Ninjas, will premiere on Atom Films in late 2006.

Kent lives in West Hollywood with his computers and video cameras.
