Tell us a little about yourself in a few sentences: I am a performer, writer and director in New York at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre. I am also a writer and actor in the sketch group Onassis. Currently I am a writer/actor for the new Broadway Video, Horatio Sanz & Fred Armisen’s Latino internet channel, Más Mejor and I was recently picked as one of Comedy Central's "Comics To Watch 2015."

What drew you to doing impressions? I stumbled upon being able to do them and had so much fun with it. The look people give you when they hear you nail an impression is, to be extremely cliché, like a drug. 

Who was your comedic inspiration? There are way too many to just name one. Huge fan of late ‘80s and ‘90s SNL, ‘90s Conan (O’Brien), Kids in the Hall, SCTV, Mr. Show, Madeline Kahn, Eddie Murphy, Ghostbusters, The State, and MST3K.  

Why do you think you’ll be America’s favorite impressionist? I think I bring more than just the impression. It's one thing to be able to do the impression; it's another to give it life and your particular comedic sensibilities. References only get you so far -- there has to be content as well. Yeah, that should be pretentious enough of an answer! Weeee!
