I’m a television writer/producer and an ever-recovering (sometimes recurring) publicist. You know, a floor wax AND a dessert topping.

I started in publicity, working for Conan O’Brien, Lorne Michaels and the cast of SNL. I segued to producing hundreds of segments with Jimmy Fallon and writing for award shows, daytime, game shows and news. I’ve worked alongside writers, producers, researchers, journalists, executives — and talent including Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Seth Meyers, Bill Hader, Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and more.

I’ve trained a generation of publicity practitioners and most recently ran communications for VICE Media’s VICELAND and launched “Desus & Mero” into the late night universe.
