ABOUT ME

Where to begin, I am a comedian, writer and a 30-something from New York City. I have my BA in economics from The City College of New York. Colin Powell went there, maybe you’ve heard of him? I used that degree to pursue my yearning passion of wanting to be an an office temp.

New York is my identity, with every slice of pizza I ever ate and every subway car I was ever sardined into. I started comedy there and now I am here where I do comedy and write pilots, short films, and one-act plays.

I also produce Sillibuster Comedy with some of my closest friends in comedy second Sunday of every month at Veterans of Foreign Wars Ship 8310 (Burbank VFW) a stone’s throw away from Downtown Burbank. Go one of these months. The lineups are always fantastic!
