mason flink
artistic director/founder

Mason Flink is a writer, director, and performer based in Los Angeles. 

Mason first moved to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue an M.F.A. in the Peter Stark Producing Program at USC's School of Cinematic Arts, where he received the Peter Stark Filmmaking Award and a massive amount of student loan debt. He also holds a B.A. in International Relations from Stanford University, which has been super useful.

Mason is originally from Dallas, TX, a fact he blames on his parents, the 1980s booming real estate market, and God.

Mason is represented by Mosaic.
