Creator of comics, poetry, short stories, and essays.
I write humor pieces for the New Yorker’s Shouts and Murmurs; personal essays; and essays on pop culture trends, digital lives (as they evolve with tech), music, and sports. I was the founding editor of AboveAverage.com, a comedy website in the Broadway Video family. I’m currently an associate producer at The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore and look forward to writing more pieces on a range of topics.
