Comedy was always on my mind. When I was about 10 years old, I declared to my parents that once I turned 16, I was going to “buy a motorcycle, ride cross-country to Los Angeles and become a comedian.” My parents didn’t quite share my “vision” so I ended up graduating from Virginia Tech and having a marketing career for over a decade before getting on stage. Today, 20+ years into my comedy and keynote speaking career, I have presented my humor keynotes and comedy shows to thousands of groups, and I’ve been featured in The Wall Street Journal as a top convention comedian whose act is clean and in the Washington Post for my clean comedy writing. I’ve also sold comedy material to just about everyone on the planet—from late night TV shows, to hundreds of radio stations, CEOs and even guests on the Jerry Springer Show (my parents are proud!).
