Although bios are traditionally written in the third person, I feel silly pretending that other people got together, discussed how wonderful I am, and then felt compelled to write it down. I've performed at most of the top clubs in and around New York and appeared on lineups with national acts like Dave Attell and Godfrey. My act doesn’t involve the difference between how men and women argue, I don’t bring up my ethnic background, and I’ll never, ever end a joke with a plea for audience approval by saying, “You know what I’m saying, guys?” or “Right, ladies?"

Other credits include a role in a national TV commercial for retailer AJ Wright. Although not meant to be comedic, I feel it is my most humorous role to date due to the horrifying attire and wig-like hair I was sporting at the time. My greatest accomplishments thus far are never having a desire to own a Coach, Louis Vuitton, or Gucci pocketbook; and never having seen Meredith Baxter-Birney or Nancy McKeon domestically abused in a Lifetime for Women movie.
