Well....I grew up in Detroit, Michigan (Oak Park). After High School and College, I got a job at the best radio station in the world WRIF-FM and the assistant promotions director. After the station was sold to Great American Broadcasting, my job was elliminated, with no job or prospect of one that would satisfy me, I made the leap that would change my life. I became a stand-up comedian. I went to an open mic night at Mark Ridley's Comedy Castle in 1988, got my first laugh, and never looked back. I worked successfully on the road for 15 years through 46 states, Canada, Mexico and abroad. In 1989, at a comedy workshop I was a guest speaker at, I met my wife Dawn. Clueless as ever, it took her coming to see my shows at various clubs for a few months, for me to realize that she was interested in me. We dated for 5 years and got married, then moved to sunny Orlando Florida. While my wife got a job at Disney as an artist for the Disney Design Group (she's a very talented artist/graphic designer), I still worked the road. After a while we both realized that being apart was getting old, so I looked for something I could do close to home and still entertain. I auditioned and was hired by the Walt Disney Company and have been a performer for them now for 13 years. Over that time, among the things I have done for the company, I have been a part of The World Showcase Performers at Epcot, Laff 911 at Epcot, opened the Flights Of Wonder show as the Pheonix at Disney's Animal Kingdom, Comedy Warehouse at Pleasure Island, Finding Nemo: The Musical as Bruce the Shark at Disney's Animal Kingdom, and of course, The Adventurer's Club at Pleasure Island. Through out my career, I have also been seen in over 50 television commercials, 8 movies and even a few television shows. I still get out to do my stand-up from time to time, but life is pretty busy.
