Tommy Harrington is an award-winning Writer, Director, Producer, and Actor.

As a multi-medium artist, Tommy studied creative writing at UCLA before finding a wide range of underground success in both music and film: touring the country extensively as the one-man indie rock band The Wanteds, having an award-winning documentary made about his life and music, and then becoming a noted actor, producer, and director. One of his recent works, the Discipline at Work PSA, won multiple awards for its resonant message about spanking as part of a Congressional campaign to end hitting in schools.

Having grown up in a troubled family that moved frequently between the rural Midwest and Los Angeles, his work is born of a unique voice — introspective and edgy —  that often provokes as it explores difficult subjects on the darker side of the American family.

Tommy currently writes and resides in Portland, Oregon.

"Tommy Harrington has a perspective and a voice that could prove to be an important one...so real and on the mark."  James Haygood, Editor  (Fight Club, The Game, Where the Wild Things Are)
