I'm the creator and host of Science Friction, a web series that breaks down the real science behind comic book and sci-fi superpowers and shows people how they can become superhuman.

When I'm not explaining how people can teleport or turn invisible I work as a writer, producer and consultant for companies looking to build their online presence.  I've created online content for Google, Nickelodeon, TruTV and BBC America.

My career in new media started in 2007, as the head writer for BarelyPolitical.com. We made over a hundred comedy videos that took aim at politics, pop-culture and the media.  Barely Political's remixes, sketches and music videos regularly went viral and repeatedly attracted the attention of both new and traditional media outlets. I made a video called Bill O'Reilly's Producer that won two Webby's.  Bill O'Reilly didn't like it.

Before working in new media, I was a standup comic who performed at clubs, colleges and dive bars across the country.  I also appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend.
