I started out my career as an engineer at General Motors and then, deciding I needed a change, made the bold career move to become an engineer at Ford Motor Company. From there it was an easy and natural transition into a career as a comedy performer, writer, and improviser.
For over fifteen years, I was a part of the world famous comedy theatre, The Second City, working as a performer, writer, improviser, producer, director, teacher, and workshop facilitator. There I met Maribeth Monroe (Workaholics), and together we co-wrote and performed in three national touring shows. Our first show even won an award for “Best New Script” from Michigan’s Oakland Press.
I’ve also performed in children’s theatre, outreach programs for teens, industrial stage shows, improvisational comedy revues, television and radio commercials, and corporate training films. And I’ve written one-act plays for dinner theatre, online video scripts, and been a contributing writer for The Onion News Network.
Now, I’m working on my second novel, coaching comedy and humor writers, recording audiobooks, and pursuing freelance writing opportunities.
