Film; Multi-Disciplinary; Performance Art; Theatre; Stand-up Comedy
I am a multi-disciplinary artist who tours the United States as a stand-up comedian and storyteller. I am a stage and screen actor as well as a produced screenwriter and playwright. My work focuses on connecting audiences through the shared experience of joy.
As a comedian, my solo performances have garnered praise from critics and audiences alike. A reviewer recently called my solo stand-up show, Big Dad Energy, “possibly the most positive stand-up act in existence.” A veteran of over 30 comedy and Fringe festivals, I have been fortunate enough to receive accolades including “Best of Fringe” honors in Kansas City and Tucson, “Best Stand-up or Variety Performance” by San Antonio’s Bexar Stage, and was named Chicago’s “Best Stand-Up Comedian” by The Chicago Reader. My comedy album, Tell Me You’re Proud of Me, debuted at #1 on Amazon’s comedy charts.
My film and television work includes appearances on NBC’s Chicago Fire and Pop TV’s Hollywood Darlings, and a starring role in the cult favorite webseries Lunch and Learn. Recently, I received the award for “Best Supporting Actor in a Feature Film” at the Sunny Side Up Film Festival for my role in Millennial With A Cane. I have been fortunate enough to share the stage or work on projects with countless legendary names in comedy and entertainment, including Damon Wayans, Hannibal Buress, Cameron Esposito, Oscar Isaac, Chris Redd, Scott Adsit, Ty Burrell, Jake “The Snake” Roberts, Alicia Keys, Tech N9ne, and Dana Carvey.
My feature screenplay, Call Me Thor, has received numerous accolades, including being named “Best Feature Screenplay” at a handful of festivals throughout the United States. My pilot, Gary Wakes Up took first prize at the Lit Laughs International Comedy Film Festival, and my horror short Dead, Baby received first prize at this year’s Fade In Awards. My short script, Mourning Sickness is currently being produced by V-Pac Productions in the United Kingdom.
