If “Space Wizard” was a thing, I’d be that. But it’s not. So for now, I keep busy by pitching and developing branded programming for Viacom and AwesomenessTV, making short films about evil Magic 8 Balls and STDs, tweeting jokes at @NotHassAvocados, and being the libated librettist for Musical Therapy, an original comedy musical about a couples therapist gone rogue.
Jumped around from Chicago to Milwaukee to LA (corn to curds to kale). Met some rad artists, wrote some cool stuff, and ate a lot of cheese.
Honestly, it’s been pretty wizard. If you wanna hear about it, hit me up. Curds are on me.
