The series—which he also wrote, directed, and edited—ran for three seasons and has been viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube.

In 2016, he received a Mississauga Arts Council Award as the city’s Best Emerging Media Artist. In 2017, he was nominated for Best Director by the International Academy of Web Television.
Murray began making short films as a teenager. His short film work includes his film school thesis project, Inside the Whale (2014), which is available to stream online in the National Screen Institute’s archives; Stephanie’s Room (2015), which won the 48 Hour Film Project competition in Toronto; and his latest film, Ghost (2020), which has screened at film festivals internationally, including at the 47th annual Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF), the 30th annual Inside Out Film Festival, the 34th annual Connecticut LGBTQ Film Festival, and the 5th annual Paris Independent Film Festival.
