I have been performing stand-up comedy for just shy of a full year, but I've been embarrassing myself onstage for much longer. Originally from Alabama, I spent my high school years performing in school theater shows and talent shows alike. Upon graduating, I began attending Columbia in New York City, when I started going to open mics around the city.

My accolades (or lack there-of) reflect my newness to the comedy scene, but I'm getting my fair share of attention. If pats on the back and enthusiastic compliments were the same of winning Emmy’s in the comedy industry, I'd surely have a very impressive number of Emmy’s. My ability to tell a well-structured, carefully considered, absolutely ridiculous joke should not be underestimated.
