Prior to the beloved comedy “Parks and Recreation,” which he co-created, Schur spent four years as a writer-producer on the Emmy Award-winning NBC hit “The Office,” where he was also individually nominated twice for writing the episodes “Christmas Party” and “The Negotiation.” (Some may also recognize him for playing Dwight Schrute’s ghoulish, bearded beet-farming cousin, Mose Schrute.)

Schur currently lives in Los Angeles with his wife, J.J. Philbin, and their two children.
