Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, I began doing stand up comedy at local open mics in Syracuse, NY. Unlike prisons and snowstorms, stage time in upstate NY is very limited. So I hit the road on a quest for the next available mic. This obsession resulted in performances at Caroline’s on Broadway, Eastville and Comic Strip Live in NYC, as well as Magooby’s Joke House in Maryland, Joker’s Wild in Connecticut, and several other venues in the northeast. I have performed with acts such as Tom Green (MTV, Road Trip) and Doug Stanhope (alcoholism, "Celebrity Death Pool"). They were really nice to me. I am "no big deal." However, sometimes audiences describe me as endearing, genuine and hilarious. Recently I've learned I don't exist because I don't live in NYC, Boston, Chicago or LA. Really, it's a matter of opinion.
