RIP The Iron Sheik

I felt honored, both when I got to play a chubby, furry version of him in a Daily Show sketch back in the day, but doubly so when he followed me on Twitter just to call me a jabroni. #goodtimes #restinpower #camelclutch

At what point do I have to get new headshots?

I’ve been hard on my knees. Years of theater, musical theater, and a couple of jobs that involved heavy lifting, and I’ve beaten the crap out of them. Bone on bone arthritis. Ouch.
