Hey, I'm Nate!
Los Angeles, California
Sharing a birthday with Edgar Allen Poe, Nate Ruegger was born to horror. His first memory was hiding behind his fingers while watching Ghostbusters. His bedtime stories were Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark. His family movie nights were Hitchcock double features. At an early age, Nate had the good fortune to work for Steven Spielberg -- and after that, there was no turning back. He studied directing at Dartmouth and USC Film School, toured the film festival circuit with his award-winning thriller short "Another Life," and now he is excited to bring "Trust Me" to life.
