I write, perform, and direct at the Upright Citzens' Brigade Theater in Los Angeles, and formerly New York. Here's my UCB comedy profile if that matters to you -

I have written for SNL's Weekend Update, The Onion News Network, and the shows Epic How To, Honest Trailers, Honest Game Trailers, Blissful Thinking, and others.

My writing has appeared in McSweeney's, The Onion, College Humor, Splitsider, Trop Magazine, and others.

I currently put some assorted humor writing and short stories up on my Substack - usually twice a month or so. You can subscribe and get it sent straight to your email, or just read it online.

I run the humor magazine Janice, which has put out two print issues and occasionally updates with online content.

You can listen to my serialized fiction comedy podcast, ScaryTown, on Apple Podcasts or the Campfire Media podcast network.

Currently, at UCB, I host the experimental comedy variety show Cool Shit Weird Shit.

I used to have a comedy podcast called Lifescrapers: Tall Stories of American Lives. You can listen to the archives.
