I am a comedian based in Los Angeles, who occasionally travels outside the city to do comedy. I've performed at the Bridgetown, Riot, & Just for Laughs comedy festivals, as well as having performed on local LA mainstays as Put Your Hands Together, Power Violence, and The Meltdown w/Jonah and Kumail. Sometimes I'm on TV, but God help you if you watch most of the stuff I've been on.
