I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1970's. I am an only child, and was raised primarily by my Mom. I've always loved entertaining people, and apparently I did a killer Zsa Zsa Gabor impression at age three. I spent most of my formative years as a theater nerd, so I'm sure that gives you a pretty accurate idea of the excitement of my high school social life.
I attended Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, where I had a roommate who turned tricks in our dorm room, and I received an incredibly useful and in-demand BFA in theater (read: I'm a really great bartender). After years spent in New York, I moved to Los Angeles, mainly to pursue an acting career, but also because I couldn't afford to live by myself in Manhattan. Upon moving to LA I booked two commercials that never aired, lost a part in a movie to someone with "name recognition" and finally gave up acting for the incredibly lucrative life of a stand-up comic. I've been described as a "young Rita Rudner" and have performed throughout the United States.
Upon discovering that it was possible to turn my jokes, sarcasm and unique life experiences into story form, I embarked on a journey into the world of writing. I have completed several television scripts, written and produced an original spec comedy pilot, and I'm a regular contributor to Scary Mommy, HuffPo Parents, and Laughing My Vag Off. I currently work primarily as a freelance writer, and I am the Los Angeles Editor for Stroller Traffic.
