The world is sooo..

serious. What’s up with that? Like stocks and Excel sheets – who invented those things? And retirement funds and business meetings, stop you’re making my head hurt.

And wearing suits to job interviews, and the perfect resume and the news. Hey, I said stop you’re making my head spin.

And having the perfect set of guidelines for relationships and marriages and OK you’re exhausting me now I need a nap.

If you start talking to me about serious things, I will nod like I’m listening but really I am probably thinking about the time my dog woofed at me for a McDonalds chicken nugget.

Life can be as funny as you make it out to be. ​That’s why I've gone ahead and studied sketch, satire, writing for TV/Film & Webseries with The Second City, Chicago. I've also spent time performing stand up at ImprovBoston and have thrown a few other workshops into the mix over the years (see the full list below.) 

My satire writing has been featured on McSweeney's Internet Tendency, Weekly Humorist, Belladonna Comedy & more. To view a writing portfolio visit the “Writing” tab. Want to read my latest from Humor Darling? There's a tab for that too. For funny posts and things for comedy writers go to “Blog”. Crack a beer (no wine on tap here sorry) and click around, you’ll find all sorts of clownin' around and if you're being too serious I am here to remind you to laugh.

Oh and P.S. I'm still salty about Tom Brady leaving the Pats…
