I'm a comedian from Detroit, where I started performing regularly at the famous Comedy Castle at age 16. Two years in I was filmed for the documentary Be Funny which featured Christopher Titus and Mike Green.

In 2009 I graduated cum laude with honors in philosophy. Before I graduated I racked up prestigious internships at The US Dept. of State, working at the US Embassy in Paris, receiving George W Bush's foreign visit (got to go bike riding with him!), and National Public Radio's WUOM Michigan Radio.

After college, I moved back to Paris in the summer of 2013 to both write and perform stand-up in both French and English. I then returned to the US due to a family tragedy and lived between Boulder, Colorado and Chicago performing and writing plays, as well as being featured on the TV show Sex Sent Me to The ER, and the movie Do You Believe.

When I graduated from college it was in '09 in Detroit, the worst economy in the worst economy since the great depression. I couldn't get a job to save my life. However, through hustle and grit I started a job in sales development by going door-to-door all over Detroit and Chicago and finally landed a job continuing to do sales development for startups.

After my family tragedy I fell into a deep depression for almost two years. I got into debt, a lot of it. And in the winter to summer of 2013-14 I was homeless in Boulder, Colorado. I lived out of my truck and whoever I could convince to take me in. Piled up thousands and thousands in debt as I stopped paying my bills and maxed out my credit cards.

In winter 2014-15, living in an old house in northern Michigan, in the dead of winter I realized "I'm either going to die here, or I'm going to make it out, and it's up to me." I got a job in Chicago in sales development.

Three years later I've paid off all my debt. I've done stand-up comedy on two continents, eight countries and all over the United States. I've opened for comedians you've seen on TV, and I've produced millions of dollars of enterprise-level opportunities for companies I've worked for, and I have a team of people who have produced hundreds of millions.
