Let’s see… I played Division I college soccer for UC Irvine, but no one cares about soccer in America so I got a degree in Literary Journalism. I waited tables at the Irvine Improv Comedy Club while in school, and after hosting a roast of the senior members of my fraternity, caught the bug to try stand-up myself.
I began to lead a double life—advertising by day, stand-up by night. I’d write a rap song for a McDonald's Angus Third Pounder radio commercial during the day, then hop in the car and drive all over Southern California to perform stand-up comedy at night. It was ridiculous, and very bad for my health.
Over the course of eight years I performed over a thousand times in 15 different states at comedy clubs, colleges, casinos, bars, bowling alleys and more. I became a regular performer at the World Famous Improv and Laugh Factory comedy clubs in Los Angeles, sharing the stage with all of my comedy heroes like Louis CK, Daniel Tosh, Bill Burr, etc. I've produced several recurring live comedy shows in Los Angeles and Orange County, hosted podcasts, have been heard on Sirius Satellite Radio, and seen in National Lampoon’s Dirty Jokes: The Movie.
As for the daytime stuff, I served as Head Writer for the start-up company Volio, where I wrote and helped deliver the 8-minute award-winning presentation used onstage during the 2013 DEMO Mobile conference. I’ve also served as Senior Copywriter for bigger companies like Sony Electronics and Renovate America.
I've written screenplays and television pilots, and a book of funny short stories for you to read on the toilet.
When I'm not hovered over my laptop I play a lot of soccer, surf mediocrely, or head to the beach with my wife in the camper trailer we've been renovating.
