Matt Cullen

In 2012, after graduating from Pace University in New York, best friends Matt Cullen and Troy LaPersonerie moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting careers. Seeking a creative outlet, they began filming short comedic videos under the moniker of The Webchat Boys. By August of 2014, however, the duo’s focus had shifted from creating short videos to scripting the first season of Raymond & Lane, a web series based on the offbeat lives of its creators. Having recently completed it’s second season, the series now boasts a strong following on YouTube and has featured guest stars such as Heather Matarazzo (Princess Diaries, Welcome to the Dollhouse), Danny Belrose (Portlandia) and Kelly Washington (Parks & Recreation, Jurassic World).

In April of 2015, Cullen and LaPersonerie were honored guests at the 2015 Los Angeles Webfest, an awards ceremony devoted to online series. Both were nominated in the Outstanding Lead Male Actor in a Comedy Series category, and cast member Samantha Purnell earned a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series.

James Beach

May 29, 2014

Author James Beach is fascinated by science, politics and history and is magnetically drawn to the bizarre and the metaphysical. Through his writing, he takes aim at these subjects and fires arrows dipped in satire.

His work is perhaps best described as “tales for grown-up children.” His published works include My Undead Dad, Peas in a Pod, and his most recent book, The Hollyweird Show, which tells the story of cartoon characters and the world they go to once they’ve been rejected by their creators.

James is currently working on a novel entitled Two-Fisted Jesus Tales, a dark satire that explores the belief systems of conservative Christians. Readers can learn more about James and his writing at his website, www.jimbeach.net.
