In 2018, I participated in the Native American TV Writers Lab as well as Kung Fu Monkey Productions’ TV Writers Bootcamp. I had pilot scripts place in the Austin Film Festival (Second-Rounder), the PAGE International Screenwriting Awards (Semifinalist), the WeScreenplay TV Pilot Contest (Quarterfinalist), and the New York TV Festival (Notable Writer).
Past writing achievements include the Silver Prize in the Beverly Hills Screenplay Contest and the Spotlight Award for “Best Dialogue” in the Fresh Voices Contest. I’m also an NBC Late Night Writers Workshop alumnus, where I received training from some of the most prolific writers in Late Night.
I started out performing standup in my hometown of Boston when I was 19. After some festival success I was touring internationally by the time I was 22. I won the Detroit International Comedy Festival as well as Catch a Rising Star's “Catch a New Rising Star” Competition, and was a finalist in Budd Friedman and Adam Sandler’s “Funny People” Contest in Las Vegas.
Last year I staffed at mitú, a digital media company catering to Latino millennials, and I’ve contributed editorial pieces to Condé Nast (Glamour) as well as Hearst (Cosmopolitan) magazines since 2014.
I’m also a Libra and an above-average bowler, living in Los Angeles with my wife – who is pregnant with twins – and our adopted pug, Macho Man.
