In the past, he's had the great pleasure of performing in other improv shows including THE BEATBOX, CHOOSE YOUR OWN MUSICAL and DSI HIGH. He has written and performed sketch comedy with 3-time Sketch Cagematch champion BAT FANCY and DSI sketch revues DUCK WAX and BEES SMELL FEAR. He was also head writer and director of DSI's holiday sketch revue LOVE IN THE TIME OF SANTA CLAUS, and is a writer/performer for the DSI sketch revue LOCAL BUZZ.
