I grew up in Maryland and studied acting at The Goodman School of Drama/DePaul University in Chicago. After a brief time in Los Angeles during which I discovered that the camera really does add 10 pounds, I moved to New York. I worked in commercials, TV, plays, sketch comedy, improv shows and as a playwright and columnist. Along the way I stopped acting, moved to New Jersey and had two kids - not necessarily in that order.
I have written sketch comedy, plays, newspaper columns, blogs and books. Usually when I write, I try to make it funny. It's just better that way.
