"The best and most important moment I witnessed in comedy this year was Matt Ruby closing out his show at Doc’s Lab on the day after the election. It was a night I won’t forget...Everyone in the room that night witnessed something really special."

Hey. I'm a standup comedian from New York City and my debut album is "Hot Flashes" (released by 800 Pound Gorilla Records).

I'm a comic because I like to tell the truth and I realized that being funny is the best way to do it. I talk frequently about relationships, politics, race, religion, technology, and sex. (Honestly, trying to describe one's comedy style is rather silly. If writing about music is like dancing about architecture, than writing about comedy is like creating a musical about a tiger – wait a minute, that's just Lion King. Um, moving on...)

I'm also the creator of Vooza, a video comic strip about the tech world (called the "The Spinal Tap of startups" by Mashable). And I co-produce Hot Soup, one of the hottest live comedy shows in New York City, and the annual Schtick or Treat show.

Here's the part where I list a bunch of credits that you will most likely skip over because, y'know, lists. I've been seen on MTV's Girl Code and The Comedy Show Show on Seeso. I've also been featured on, The Huffington Post, NY Magazine, Time Out NY ("Joke of the Year" nominee), ComedySmack (Winner of Best Web Short of the Year), Splitsider, and more. I've also appeared across the country at comedy venues and festivals including SXSW, Bridgetown, NY Comedy Contest, SF Comedy Contest, Boston Comedy Festival, and the New Orleans Comedy and Arts Festival.

Sandpaper Suit is the name of my comedy blog. It was nominated for Best Comedy Website by The ECNY awards.
