About me: I've been teaching since 2010 and coaching since 2012. This is my eighth round of WE workshops. I've taught collegiate workshops in San Diego, San Luis Obispo, and Olympia. I've taken my improv podcast, The MEAT, on two tours, one nine city tour across the U.S. and another seven city tour across Europe and Iceland. I've taught workshops in Phoenix, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Reykjavik, London, Bristol, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Berlin. And I recently taught improv to blind daters on TV. It was weird. Ask me about it.
I was a 2010 Teach For America Corps Member, and I earned my Masters in Education Strategies from LMU. I was an educational specialist for eight years in Los Angeles.
I'm the co-creator and co-host of The MEAT Improv Podcast alongside Josh Simpson, and the monthly late night talk show We're Gross with Gilli Nissim. I'm on the UCB Harold Team Vulture, and the form inventing team Puddy!
Ok that’s it. Let’s make some great improv together! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
