Born and raised in Portland, Maine
The youngest of four, I grew up in a tight knit family. I always loved to make people laugh - the fourth child getting attention by any means necessary - whether it's being silly (thanks Mom) or sarcastic (thanks Dad). Seinfeld was it for me growing up (my brother and I taped almost every episode), and then the British Office blew my mind and inspired me to write comedy myself.
After graduating from college, I lived in Boston and Charlotte for a couple years before heading west to LA - first living underneath the Hollywood sign and now out in Santa Monica. Getting my Gladwell 10,000 hours in, I've been waking and writing six days a week since 2007.
I started doing copywriting work in 2014. I wrote a children’s book for my nieces and nephews in 2017 called B for Baby and donated all proceeds to support genetic researchers at Boston Children's Hospital.
