I’ve immersed myself in the world of improv and sketch comedy in New York for almost 20 years.  I’ve completed both programs at the Upright Citizen Brigade and The Magnet Theater and have been on countless teams.  I still do workshops and classes to this day and have worked with some incredible people.  I even taught improv and sketch at an acting school and privately when I was in Delaware in the early 2010s. 

 

Improv helps me think on my feet and create something out of very little.  It's a big part of my process for generating ideas, especially for creating TV.  I’m constantly writing down funny ideas for myself and my advertising work.  I’m not a person who is always “on”,  but my radar is always up for a good joke.  I love being around other people who enjoy comedy like I do and are open to collaborating on our ideas.

 

Not every piece in my portfolio tries to make you laugh.  I like having the freedom to choose more sincere routes in my work when it makes sense.  That’s part of what I love about advertising, I can use the full palette of my skills, experiences, and talents to create work that can connect to your funny bone, heart, and sometimes both.
