Title: Stand up Comedian/ Creative
City you live in: Gilbert
A typical day in my life includes… waking up around 6 am, taking my poodle/German Shepard mix on a morning jog. Going to the gym , and taking my laptop to local WiFi areas to work on new projects.
I was born… in Sleepy Hollow, NY.
My favorite thing about Arizona… is the weather and people.
I’m listening to… Drake and Romeo Santos
My family… consist of my single mom and 4 siblings (3 sisters and 1 brother)
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Elon Musk , Just ask a million questions on everything.
One thing I cannot live without… is music. It’s my refuge. It allows me to work out harder, brainstorm, and also therapy for when life gets rough.
When I was younger, I wanted to be… a teacher but that took a wild turn lol
I’m inspired by… my mother. Being single with 5 kids in a 2 bedroom apt made me realize I have no excuse for not achieving excellence.
The one person who motivates me is… Kevin Hart. How he is one of the best in his craft while still being completely human with his mistakes is what makes him so relevant in my own story.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… the ability to find common ground rather than the things that make us different. A true understanding that we are more alike than anything else.
The perfect day would be… a beach with drink in hand with really great company and also a sold-out comedy show to end the night.
My first job was… a waiter.
My favorite escape… is the mountains of Arizona.
My life… has started out rough but nothing I would exchange for it otherwise, life now is that much sweeter because of knowing how bitter it could really be otherwise.
I’m currently working on… a comedy special and working with other creatives.
Favorite Quote… “the universe will reward effort not just requests.”
Biggest Dream… financial stability for my entire family.
My Pet Peeve(s)… people who are not on time.
