about

I am a humorist / engineer / speaker / entrepreneur / nerd. I’m also the author of this site, so this about section is in the first person. Want the third-person bio version? Check out my bio.

I was born and raised in Cincinnati, OH, where I attended Princeton High School, played soccer, ate Skyline Chili and nerded it up. I graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Computer Science & Engineering and started my comedy career as a founding member of The 8th Floor Improv Comedy Group.

Since 2005, I have performed in over 1,000 shows in front of 50,000+ people in all 50 states, 18 countries, and 3 continents. I’ve been on VH1, TEDx, and was a writer for a sketch show on DirectTV.

I am currently based out of NYC, where I perform stand-up and improv comedy, and run a business focused on using humor at work.
