Curtis Casella is the co-creator of Paper Boys and has acted as a writer, director, editor, and is the Executive Producer. He graduated from UCLA summa cum laude with a degree in Film and Television. Curtis currently lives in San Francisco, but he's lived in Los Angeles, New York, Paris and Johannesburg. He's circumnavigated the globe twice, but all in economy class. He doesn’t recommend that unless you strongly dislike your legs.
Curtis has written, produced and directed several short films, a documentary, and a new media web series called Searching For Kelly that told its story through a series of interlinked "found" articles, footage and blog posts by the characters in the story.
