Welcome to the future. None of us thought the “Future” would be like this. Where’s the flying cars? Times are weird and we are all doing our best. I beg you to take the time to take care of yourself! Exercise, breathe, dance and hug the ones you can! I can’t wait till I can get a comedy tour on the calendar and come hug all of you! Till then…

I’m reading, meditating and having my patience tried on a daily basis by my 3 year old… if you got kids… you get it. I love it all but wow…. WOW is it a lot sometimes. Hang in there if you are experiencing it too! We can do this!

Besides Dadding my ass off I am working on scripts for more commercials and have had the chance to work with a few great brands! I also started writing a few songs on my guitar. (You will never hear them so don’t ask… they are horrible.) A little yoga. and some surfing too.

I send you love and strength… be well. Cheers!

The best part of my life is being a dad! I have a great kid who teaches me way more about being a good human than I teach her. She was born in 2017 which was the same year I won The San Diego Funniest Person Contest. In 2018 I was asked to help write and act in the first Dr. Squatch commercial, later that year I placed 2nd at the World Series of Comedy. Since then I have been fortunate enough to make more commercials with great brands! Up until 2020 I was performing standup 5 nights a week in San Diego and all over the country.

In 2011, I signed up for improv classes, performed with The Third Thought improv group, and began writing sketches and standup comedy. A year later, I moved from Florida to San Diego to pursue comedy full-time. To start this next chapter I spent 6 months driving around the country doing comedy open mics in every city I stopped in, The Third Thought improv group performed at the UCB Del Close Marathon in NYC, and then I spent 5 weeks in Chicago while attending the iO Summer Improv Intensive Workshop. San Diego was my final destination in October of 2012 and after making the rounds of open mics I became a featured performer at The La Jolla Comedy Store, The American Comedy Co, The Mad House Comedy Club and The Comedy Palace. Since 2012 I have been lucky enough to open for Al Madrigal, Dave Attell, Tom Rhodes, Pablo Francisco, Doug Stanhope, Fortune Feimster, Steve Rannazzisi, Joey "Coco" Diaz and many more great comics.  

In 2018 I teamed up with Raindrop Branding and Marketing to create a commercial for Dr. Squatch Soap. The success of that commercial lead to more wonderful opportunities with Dr. Squatch, William Painter, Soapy Joe’s, WORX Power Tools, the San Diego Symphony and more. To date, I have co-written and acted in commercials with over 500 million views including an ad for the San Diego Symphony which won an Emmy. In 2021 Dr. Squatch decided to go all out and we made a 30 second ad for Super Bowl LV. I can’t believe it either.
