Hi, I want to coach your team!
I've being doing improv since 2011 and I currently perform with Magnet Theater house sketch team Newport. In the past I was on the Magnet house teams 1,000 Foot Whale Claw (improv), Squash, Pipe Dreams, and Startup (musical improv) as well as Danger Noodle, Chillionaire, and Stockton (sketch). I've also studied improv and sketch thoroughly at UCB where I've taken many advanced study classes in each program and am currently apart of their academy program where recently I was apart of Fall Stock, the musical improv ASP. Additionally I work as a part of Freestyle Repertory Theater where I perform short-form improv as well as help lead workshops in schools all over the Tri-State Area. I am also a director, actor, and teaching assistant with Story Pirates and have teched a bunch at UCB Chelsea/Hell's Kitchen. Wow, what a boat-load of comedy experience that is!
