I graduated Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa from Beloit College in May, 2014, where I was a four-year varsity letter winner and two year starter on the baseball team and academic all-conference.  Following graduation, I moved to Brisbane, Australia, to play on a professional baseball team in the Australian Baseball League in the 2014-2015 season.  Throughout college I produced and starred in multiple live shows, along with radio and television programs, and have pursued a career in comedy after college, continuing my education in the Second City Training Center.  I have performed throughout Chicago and Australia as a stand-up comedian, and in improv and sketch shows at Second City.  

 

In addition, I have spent years coaching baseball at a high level both in Brisbane, Australia for the Pine Hills Lightning Baseball Club and as the assistant varsity coach for Taft High School in Chicago.  I have more recently begun running sports programs to kids of all ages.  As a private coach, running my own summer camps, or leading classes, leagues and programs in schools for We Got Game, I have extensive experience working with kids to develop skills in sports and beyond.  

 

As a South Side of Chicago native, I grew up playing basketball at the local YMCA on 63rd and Stony Island and baseball at the Hyde Park Kenwood Little League.  After graduating from Jones College Prep High School in Chicago, I went on to Oberlin College to continue my education and pursue my baseball career, spending two years there before finishing my last two years at Beloit College in Wisconsin.  My roots in Chicago run deep and I plan on giving back to the communities by bringing improv into schools and giving everyone something to laugh about.
