I’m originally from Antigonish, Nova Scotia. Stand-Up comedy was what I always wanted to do. I even went to university, got a business degree, and knew from day one that I was never going to do anything other than stand up. So I made my parents happy…and then I made them sad.

People always ask me how I got into comedy. Well, I graduated university, I moved to Toronto, I called Yuk Yuks, I did an amateur night, and that was it. Boring story.


But since then, life has gotten a little more interesting. I’ve been lucky enough to record my own television special, performed across North America, lived in New York City, LA and San Francisco…comedy has been good to me!
