A life-long fan of TV, Pasha has interned on a handful of television shows in LA and London that have been cancelled during or not long after his tenure with them. Aside from this, he has been involved in various online fan efforts for such short-lived shows as Drive and Terriers. Upon realizing everything he touches turns to cancellation, he began working on short films and various writing projects until such a time that his very interest in a show doesn’t equate to its being axed.
