Eric D. Cohen

Eric D. Cohen spent his first 24 years on Earth convinced that he would always be an engineer. He majored in Electrical Engineering at Princeton University, and spent several years working as a developer at Microsoft before catching the film bug and going back to school. He attended NYU from 2012 to 2015, receiving a dual MBA/MFA degree in film and business at the Tisch School of the Arts and Stern School of Business. There, he produced, wrote, and directed numerous shorts, ultimately winning the NYU Media Services Producing Award in 2015, honoring outstanding producing work by a Tisch alumnus. Upon graduation, he moved to LA, where he works as Head of Content and Operations for start-up production company OBB Pictures, producing a variety of series and documentaries for TV and digital distribution. The Radioactive Boy Scout is his first feature film as a writer/director.
