Born in Durango, Colorado, Devon Gummersall grew up in Los Angeles and followed his father's footsteps (abstract painter C. Gregory Gummersall) into the arts. He began his career at the age of 14 playing "Brian Krakow" on the highly-acclaimed ABC series "My So-Called Life" with Claire Danes. Intrigued by visual storytelling, Devon quickly began his journey to the other side of the camera. He has since worked on staff and penned several episodes of Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick's internet/NBC series "quarterlife." He filmed, edited, and directed the music documentary "Lawn Chairs and Living Rooms" and directed the award-winning short films "Bullies On Vacation" and "PORK...a short film." Devon wrote and directed the indie feature "Low Fidelity" (released by Amplify in 2013) and recently completed filming his second narrative feature, indie thriller "The Inherited" starring Nathan Darrow (House of Cards) and Annabella Sciorra.
In addition to his film work Devon co-founded the LA-based theater ensemble The Piece Project and recently directed the West Coast premiere of Bekah Brunstetter's "Drunk" for the IAMA theater company.
Devon is proud to be a member of the 2014-2016 ABC/Disney/DGA Director Program.
