Hey there, thanks for visiting my website!
I know this is where the bio goes but I’ve been reluctant to write one ‘cause it feels braggadocios since I wasn’t raised that way, plus I struggle with thoughts of “is what I’ve done even good enough to brag about?” But then, I realize dOnald tRump is president and anything goes, #ftw. Besides, since it’s my website, I really should try and describe my “accomplishments” in a funny and charming and who knows, maybe even poignant way, but then of course, none of it matters ’cause, who’s really going to read it anyway? But, since you are reading this now, I’m curious – do you care that I am originally from Chicago? I mean, does it make a difference to you to know that I’ve toured and performed with sketch groups and improv groups and done stand up comedy with famous people? Or perhaps, you prefer to hear about the other random things I’ve done, like compete in bodybuilding, run away at age 7 or get Zonked on Let’s Make A Deal? How about the time I did mushrooms and learned my cat was god and then got her tattoo’d on my arm? Do you like that writing/producing/editing comedy content with others is my jam and I’m constantly learning new skillz? One thing I’m legit proud of is that for a whole year I co-hosted and helped produce a weekly late-night talk show at Second City Chicago. And I think it’s awesome and cool that I have family in Japan and LOVE to go there even though I was kicked out of the onsen for having said tattoo… BUT, I’m willing to bet cash money that nobody’s life (besides mine) is improved by learning I am a proud graduate of the Second City Conservatory and Groundlings “Lab” and that I have three “traditional” degrees, like; two bachelors & a Masters degree…in science*.
I’m convinced none of this matters because I’m
writing updating this on Jan. 28, 2019 and DONALD J. TRUMP IS STILL THE PRESIDENT…and even I am having a hard time giving a shit that I took writing classes at UCLA, Groundlings, Second City, iO & with Corey Mandell, and clown classes with Paola Coletto. It’s not like I’m glib about the end of the world, humans have had a pretty good run (considering all the devastation and destruction man has created – and YES, I specifically mean men)…but I probably shouldn’t put that on my “about me” page on my comedy website. But since I’m writing this during the potentially end of the world, wgaf, right? And, maybe all this life experience and training and the fact that I’m addicted to news and politics right now makes me extremely hire-able for your writer’s room or as your script supervisor? That’s the goal.

ps posting all these pictures of myself feels super-self indulgent so I’ve included a few pics of me looking ridiculous to balance it out.
