A native New Yorker, Neil has had a hand in writing and producing just about every iteration of spurn, the critically- and commercially-acclaimed sketch comedy series, since its debut in 2001. Other accomplishments include co-producing spurn Productions' first film project, a short entitled Mr. Unlucky, and making his directorial debut with Israel Horovitz's venerable "It's Called the Sugar Plum" in 2003 for the Etcetera Theatre Company.

Neil also produced an Off-Broadway musical, Genius Famous, written by spurn's own sound designer, Jason Atkinson, which premiered at the 2005 New York International Fringe Festival. He continues to work on a feature-length screenplay set during the fall of the Roman Empire (seriously).  Neil has collaborated over the years with folks as diverse as spurn’s own McIntyre and Paravonian, and several years ago helped kick start The Brooklyn Comedy Company with Elon James White and Baron Vaughn, both of whom have collectively moved on to great success, the bastards. Seriously, Elon’s ranting appears regularly at The Huffington Post and Salon, while Baron has done Jimmy Fallon and plays Leo on USA Networks’ “Fairly Legal”.  WTF?  Neil also endlessly bats around ideas for other film, television and publishing projects, and will one day find the time to write them all.  Maybe.

In late 2004, Neil married Richelle Rae Hart. In October 2006, Richelle gave birth to spurn's first official offspring, Chandra Marie Hart Trivedi, a name she will only hear in its entirety if she's in big, big trouble. Chandra has been used as a prop in several spurn video podcasts, with more to follow. More recently, in February 2010, her little brother, Stephen Gregg, aka “Brisket” and/or “Meatsleeves”, was brought kicking and screaming into the world. Based upon a year of managing two children, Neil and Richelle swear that they are officially done with offspring.  In fact, if there’s any outside interest, perhaps we can arrange a mutually beneficial financial arrangement to have you take one them off our hands.  You pick.
