"I’ve been performing in one form or another since I was about 13 years old. It started with theater in middle school, then continued on with improv and playing in bands in high school, culminating in me diving into the waters of stand-up comedy in college. For almost a decade now, comedy has been a part of my life whether it was improv, sketch or stand-up, and I couldn’t imagine my life without comedy. It’s allowed me the opportunity to write and perform and create something that I’m proud of, from the material I’ve written to producing shows with Whiskey Bear Comedy. I’ve been able to visit more of this country than a young boy from a small town in Ohio ever thought he’d get to see, and I owe all of that to comedy. I’ve forged some of my strongest friendships with some of the best people in the world, all because we had something to say and decided that we wanted to be heard. There aren’t many feelings that come close to performing for an audience hanging on your every word, laughing at all the right parts. I wouldn’t trade that feeling for anything in the world."
