about

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

Television/Film.
Commercial work.
Industrials.

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.

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.
