Hullum met his production partner Burnie Burns while working at TSTV at the University of Texas at Austin. He recalled loving the creative freedom due to the lack of "gatekeepers" at the station. He would graduate with a Bachelor of Science in film.
Alongside Burns, he would direct, write and produce their directorial debut The Schedule (1997), starring his roommate Joel Heyman. He would go on to work as the visual effects coordinator for Hollywood films such as The Faculty and Driven.
Hullum voices Sarge in the Rooster Teeth original series Red vs. Blue, of which he also directs, produces and serves as casting director. He directed the science fiction comedy film Lazer Team, the first feature-length film Hullum has directed in over 18 years. Hullum co-wrote the film alongside Burnie Burns, Chris Demarais, and Josh Flanagan.
His father, Everett Hullum, died on July 12, 2015, aged 73.
