I was born in New York City and grew up just north of there in the small hamlet of Katonah, NY. My childhood home was just down the street from where Martha Stewart lives but she never came over and brought me cookies or brownies or pie. Probably because she is a selfish bitch or maybe she just didn't know how close I lived and how much I love baked goods.
In 1999 while in college in Pennsylvania I began doing stand-up and would drive into New York once a week to perform at the Comic Strip Live. Upon graduation in 2001 I moved to The City where for the next nine years I split my time between drinking, working and performing (although to be honest I was usually drinking while working and performing too).
During my time in New York my humor was featured as part of the Boston Comedy Festival, the NY Surf Film Festival, the Lighthouse International Film Festival, High Times Magazine and College Sports Television as well as clubs & colleges in and around the tri-state area.
In 2010 I moved to Los Angeles to continue performing comedy and to chase my Hollywood dream, landing the role of Thomas Magnum in the feature film update of the hit 80's TV show Magnum PI. If you are a producer involved in bringing Magnum to the big-screen please contact me a few weeks before auditions begin so that I have sufficient time to get my mustache to full Selleck.
