When I was a child, I would often have my mouth 'washed' out with soap after uttering a word or phrase deemed inappropriate for my age. One day, post having my mouth washed out, I asked my mother if I could try a different flavor next time. I haven't had my mouth washed out since.
I'm a graduate of Syracuse University (May 2012) where I majored in both Television, Radio & Film and Writing & Rhetorical Studies. I currently work for The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore at Comedy Central, and, in my spare, time I write, create and pretend to have my own Food Network show.
Previously, I have worked at Viacom, Funny or Die's Billy on the Street, Bravo, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan and MTV.
I live my life and write about it. No idea is too far-fetched, outrageous or odd for me. I plan on taking my ideas and creativity to the deep depths of comedy and beyond in the form of screenplays, books, sketches, etc.
My interest in social media has attracted the eye of my own Univeristy, and for a few years I tweeted for them in addition to my own personal account. I have my own blog "The Life of A Ditk" which is where I write about my life which can be interesting at times. I have also written for several campus publications and a blog or two. Spreading myself thin is like second nature to me and I love to be as involved as possible especially if writing is part of the job description.
Using the skills I have obtained while interning and taking classes at SU I plan on becoming a comedy/television writer with dreams of hosting my own talk show. I am also highly interested in development as well as production, and would love to have one of my own creations on the tube some day.
