Originally from Northeast Pennsylvania, I am now a writer and performer in LA. Standup is my favorite. I’ve been to a few festivals, won a few competitions and been on TV a few times. (Last Comic Standing, The Rotten Tomatoes Show, Fuel TV)
I’ve also traveled the world twice by ship and am embarrassingly good at devilsticks, thanks to a belief in high school that juggling would make me cool. Spoiler alert, it did.
