I've been doing stand-up comedy for more than nine years; and several of those times have actually been in front of people! I've opened for such groups as Newsboys, MercyMe, Third Day, Switchfoot, TobyMac, and Audio Adrenaline, even though my best friend, Peter Furler, lead singer of Newsboys, will tell you that I don't like to name-drop. I also hosted the first, second, and third annual Festival Con Dios tours. Lately I've been seen on the Ultimate Comedy Tour, the TV show Bananas, and in Goodwill stores all over the country!

In 2002 Inpop Records released a comedy CD of mine called I've Got a Funny Feeling about This, and in 2004 Full Armor Entertainment put out my comedy DVD, called Firmer Abs in One Hour, which can be found both in Christian bookstores and on my Web site, or you can buy my dad's copies on eBay.

I currently write a monthly article for Clubhouse magazine called "The Adventures of Average Boy," and I appear sporadically in Christian Musician, Brio, Go!, Brio & Beyond, and Faith Talk when they don't have anything better to print.

It has been said that I have a heart for bringing people closer to God by getting them to laugh at everyday stories and not-so-everyday situations. Of course that quote came from my mom, who also can't understand why the Lakers haven't called me to replace their point guard. The bottom line is, I use stand-up comedy and humor articles as a way to draw people in so I can tell them the Good News of Jesus Christ!
