The main thing I believe is that you can take comedy seriously.
I’ve been doing improv since middle school (cool!). I currently perform and teach at the Annoyance Theatre, where I am very lucky to get to improvise weekly with Sight Unseen and Trigger Happy. Also at the Annoyance, I produce the Oddball Social Club (a very fun show), play with the lovable weirdos of Scamp, directed Wanted! Sketch Comedy from the Wild West, and got my tongue cut out in the 31st annual production of Splatter Theatre. Across town, I perform with iO Theater’s veteran team Deep Schwa and am a writer / actor with the iO Comedy Network team Secret Lawyer.
I was a performer with the Village Theatre Mainstage team in Atlanta and house teams at the Washington Improv Theater in DC. I have a whole lot of coaching / teaching experience and won a lot of high school theater awards, so I know what I’m talking about.
My two-person team, Rufio, has performed across the country - Del Close Marathon, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, Alaska State Improv Festival, Atlanta Improv Festival, Atlanta Fringe Festival, Atlanta Black Box Comedy Festival, Ocean State Improv Festival, Vancouver Improv Festival - and maintains an active blog. Want to get nerdy? Please know that I can provide that experience for you here. I told you I take comedy seriously. Guys, I've been interviewed about improv twice on NPR. I'm not cool. (Want to get even nerdier? Here's a podcast where I go very in-depth on both improv and Bill Nye.)
My main life interests are crying onstage, listening to banjo music, and talking about classic children’s literature.
Need a performer? A teacher? A coach? Let’s do it.
