Shortly after high school, he was activated and sent to Iraq. After serving 15 months overseas, he accumulated all the footage he had taken during his tour and made a short documentary about his time over in the middle east. The documentary got him into film school. As a comedian, he is an alumni from UCB, I.O. and Second City. Not to mention sharing the Stand-Up stage with comedians such as Lewis Black, Godfrey and Joe Rogan. Fun Fact: he was also on “Survivor." His experience leaves him with a very unique voice.
