On December 18, 2018 I started a 2979 day mission to achieve 10 life changing goals- the same amount of time it took NASA to land humans to the moon. I update the world on my progress every week by posting a new YouTube Video.
Some of my goals include writing and selling screenplays, buying a home, living healthy, seeing a rocket launch, doing something worthy being invited on Fresh Air to be interviewed by Terry Gross… oh, and I want to buy a nice suit. To see my full list of goals watch my Day 16 video.
I love my life, but I’ve put some of my personal goals on hold. My life path has been a weird winding one. I’m a comedian, I run a nonprofit, and I have three great kids who think I’m not very cool- which is totally correct.
I started doing sketch comedy right after college and never looked back. I loved it! We produced sketch comedy shows at local bars and in 2005 I opened the Sacramento Comedy Spot. Almost 14 years later the Comedy Spot features improv, stand-up, and sketch comedy shows six nights a week, and is Northern California’s largest comedy school. I still teach improv and sketch classes and perform in shows like The Friday Show, Anti-Cooperation League and YOU! The Musical.
The Comedy Spot is operated by the Sacramento Comedy Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to spreading laughter and supporting our community. The Foundation is more than just a comedy club, we raise money for local nonprofits, we have a kids improv program- The Improv Kids, we offer diversity scholarships, produce comedy events like the Sacramento Comedy Festival and support local comedians by giving them a place to learn, perform, and thrive.
Every once in a while, I get to interview celebrities about their upcoming movies. I’ve had the opportunity talk with a ton of actors, including Hugh Jackman, Bradley Cooper, Simon Pegg, Peter Dinklage, Michael Fassbender, Nick Frost, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Tom Hardy, Kristen Wigg, Jason Bateman, Patrick Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Ed Helms, Christina Applegate, and Kristen Stewart.
Like I said, I have a great life. But I still have some goals I want to achieve. Follow me on my journey. Succeed or fail, let’s do big things!
