I came of age in the bustling metropolis of Richfield Springs, NY (pop: 1,300) before moving to Los Angeles in search of smog and crime. I spent six years there working as an assistant on various TV shows, including Family Guy and America's Funniest Home Videos, all while dabbling in standup and growing poorer. I returned to the area in 2014 to help my mother remove an air conditioner. I enjoy history, pro wrestling, and spicy foods, and I'm looking forward to getting weird with you every evening on WOUR.
