About

Hi! I’m a comedian and sustainable tech advocate based in Brooklyn, NY.

My latest work concerns the relationship we have with technology. I’m worried that we’ve ceded our power and attention to powerful tech companies and believe we need to reconnect with ourselves and others through disconnecting. I recently switched over from a smartphone to a Light Phone and chronicle the journey on my blog.

In 2017, I wrote a children’s book titled Hey Zoey! Get Off Your Phone! and raised $9,000 on Kickstarter to make it a reality. I also wrote, produced, co-directed and acted in a commercial parody series for The Light Phone called Introducing The Smartphone™, which has hundreds of thousands of views across multiple platforms. Oh, oh, I also recorded an album partially about phone addiction with my band The Various Artists and released a music video for the song The Ballad Of Crane Neck Jones.

For much of the past decade, I spent much of my time performing at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. My show, An Evening With The Trumpet Boys, enjoyed an 8 month run at the theatre and was called a “hilarious night of sketch comedy” by The New York Times. Nice! I also performed as an actor on Maude Night, the UCB’s premiere sketch comedy night. Head on over to the video page to check out some of that hot comedy action.

I have interviewed many famous celebrities for Yahoo! Movies and once performed a Stupid Human Trick on the Late Show With David Letterman. People love to talk to me about that.
