Stand-Up Comic. Writer.

I do a lot of things. Some things I do for a while and then I stop doing them. You can follow all the things on this website.



After doing stand-up comedy for over 15 years, I along with my ride or die wife, Victoria decided to up and move with our 3 daughters from Cleveland, Ohio to New York City so I could be in the comedy capital of the world and she could do makeup for TV and film! In my mind, it was “concrete jungle where dreams are made of…there’s nothing you can’t do.”

The reality was Vic’s career took off and I had to stay home with the kids, including my youngest who has special needs and let’s just say, makes every day interesting. I’m now homeschooling her because I’m totally qualified for that. 

I have gotten to do some cool stuff, though like starring in Secret Eaters with Daphne Oz which aired on The Cooking Channel, create and produce the It Doesn’t Matter You’re Gonna Die podcast that peaked at #1 on Blog Talk Radio with over 150,000 listeners, and I’ve written 3 half-hour comedy pilots.
