Let’s see… I played Division I college soccer for UC Irvine, where I also got a degree in Literary Journalism. I waited tables at the Irvine Improv Comedy Club, 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 McDonald's Angus Third Pounder (that played on radio stations nationwide) during the day, then hop in the car and drive around Los Angeles or to Santa Barbara or San Diego to perform stand-up comedy at night. It was ridiculous.
Over the course of eight years I performed thousands of 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 been Senior Copywriter for bigger companies like Sony Electronics and Renovate America.
I've written screenplays and television pilots, and was a quarter-finalist in Final Draft’s Big Break Screenwriting Competition, reserved for the top 10% of over 7,000 submissions.
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.
