I'm a Chicago comedian who performs with Improvised Shakespeare and Baby Wants Candy. I've previously played with Cards Against Humanity and I've performed a few solo shows at the Chicago Sketchfest. My comedy's also been featured in the American Bystander, the Austin Comedy Film Festival, and McSweeneys.

I moved to the big city with nothing but a suitcase and a dream.

Now I have a suitcase.

Commercial work.

Due to what only could be a series of errors, I have never been cast in any of these.

You can find my acting reel here.


My girlfriend told me not to use this photo.

Hey here's something that really matters: I wrote a TV pilot. I figured everyone was going to want to read it so that's why I put it on here. Otherwise I'll probably just keeping sending it around to my friends who are new parents or just started good jobs.

The Business

We were described as "fearless," "inspired, absurd" by TimeOut Chicago and "all brains," by the Chicago Reader which is probably why the group desolved so it's members could apply to graduate school.
