Before he was the most excellent director you’ve never heard of, Sam Rocco was a struggling actor, mediocre hip-hop producer, and Air Traffic Controller. He spent his childhood in New Jersey watching Spielberg movies and pretending to be a Ninja Turtle. He has a totally normal obsession with comics and action movies, and is determined to one day make a buddy-cop-action-film that may or may not involve dinosaurs. Rocco spent five years in the United States Navy and HAS AN MFA in Film Production FROM USC. When not writing or directing the next in-your-face action/COMEDY/HORROR/epic, Rocco spends most of his time searching for Pokémon, eating bean burritos on his motorcycle, or writing third-person bios about himself.
