Originally posted on YouTube, “Yes We Can” received over 26 million views just days after its release, and was recognized by AdAge in 2012 as one of the most influential political ads of all time.

He produced the film for director Stacy Peralta who premiered it at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Dylan also produced and directed an original television series, “CONversations with Ricky Jay,” which was built around sleight of hand artist Ricky Jay.


In 2007, Dylan launched Lybba, a non-profit organization focused on the open source healthcare movement. The project, according to Fast Company, "combines the latest verified medical data with social networking to allow patients and health-care professionals to make informed decisions." The self-professed goal of the project: "to create an online central repository of medical information." Since their foundation, Lybba has worked with such partners as the Collaborative Chronic Care Network (C3N), And Early Development Systems Initiative (EDSI).
