Affiliations (arts org, fun things you do, etc):
I perform stand-up, sometimes act and like making things.
Here are two of my favorite comedy shows you should check out:
What's the one word you are guilty of using too much?
I say “gosh” a whole lot.
How did you end up doing what you are doing now?
I started going to comedy shows and the comedians I saw had huge impact on me. I eventually asked one if I could be his intern, he was like “ you should just do it” and I tried it, radiating fear and very sweaty.
Which member of the Wu-Tang Clan best describes your personality
I really enjoy the musical stylings of Ghostface Killah.
Dogs or Cats, who wins? Why?
Dogs because I just took a nap with a dog and overall it was a great experience.
In a zombie apocalypse who would you want on your survival team?
Definitely some buff dudes.
What is the best part of any given day for you
The beginning of the day is the best. Waking up in the morning, flexing your muscles and drinking a high-protein low-calorie shake.
What is the last thing you searched for on google?
It was something about bug bites. I’ve been struggling with the summertime bugs and to be honest, it’s been giving me the summertime blues.
One day you’ll get really into using sunscreen because a friend tells you about the spray-on kind.
What is the best thing or meal you ever ate?
Tofu bahn mi from Saigon Sandwich in San Francisco. I wish I could keep those things in my pockets!
A few months ago, I attended the Bridgetown comedy festival and came up with the idea of selling random found items at the official merch table. I asked a few friends to contribute stuff and we were open for business. Imagine festival t-shirts, posters, comedy albums and then a decorated rock with a sign “Not for sale” (the only thing not for sale). For sale merch included pair of turquoise sandals, baby owl figurine, expired Costco card and unopened bottle of Vitamin D. Everything was priced at “pay as you feel.”
