Is this a joke?

Nah, it's my life. I like to laugh and make people laugh. This is my journey. 

I’m a dog lover, stand-up comedian, professional career person & beer girl. Thanks for stopping by.

I’m a Lifelong Floridian, an only child of parents who are still married, and I’ve worked in my professional career for 15+ years and I have an adorable dog. I’ve always had a creative function and sense of humor.

I’m a bit sentimental about how I got here.

My dear friend Matt Gersting was a stand-up comedian, and we had several discussions on comedy. It was his suggestion for me to try it out. Unfortunately he passed away and never actually got to see me perform,

I never had the guts to give it a try it when he was around.

My first set was at Drunken Monkey on 5/22/2016. I went up again soon after, but I didn’t give it another try until early 2017. Since January 2017 I have been dedicating time and attention to comedy. I don’t count the number of shows that I do, but I am going to open mics more than 3 times a week, and I’m delighted to be on several showcases over the last few months. I’m thrilled to have such an open and great comedy scene here in Orlando. There’s nothing better than the week by week progression of being a new comic.

If anything is true, I have a lot to say. I try hard and I want to get better, in general. Some blog posts and content might not be necessarily “comedy” but it’s my stream of consciousness that I’d like to share. It might not be your first choice of content, but I’ll try to keep it funny to a certain degree.

What else?

I host a showcase at Broken Cauldron Brewery & Taproom, I’m on State of the Beer Union podcast, and also Existentially Nauseous podcast. All comedy events and new release episodes will be posted on the blog section!
