purpose.

There are so many places you could have gone on the internet but you chose to come here! That's rad.

My creative life has and will always boil down to one intention: "to facilitate joy in others." Whether it be through a insight, inspiration, empathy or levity... my creations are intended to make you think, feel, laugh, and grow. I spent most of my 20s and 30s as a standup comedian, but I no longer limit my expression to just jokes. Not everyone wants to laugh all the time.

 

Someone told me once "I don't really like... comedy." His comment made me realize that every art form is a language, and not everyone speaks "comedy." So, I have expanded the number of languages I know. I tell jokes. I write short stories for kindle. I act in short films/sketches. I create digital art. I do production and art design for short films. I also make personalized small-batch cocktail bitters for mixologists in New York City.
