Using my unique experience in comedy and news, I speak at corporate retreats and academic conferences on the creation, dissemination, and consumption of Fake News and the history and future of television amid social media, cord-cutting, and mobile consumption.

I also design, build, launch, and manage new TV shows, networks, apps, and platforms. Currently I’m helping build a media academy for the Republic of Georgia's National Communications Commission..

I’ve worked for or with CBS, NBC, CNN, PBS, National Geographic, Comedy Central, TIME, People, HuffPost, Tribune Publishing, The Onion, AccuWeather, Virgin Mobile, the US Department of Defense, Bill Maher, D.L Hughley, Howard Stern, Gayle King, Conan O’Brien, David Letterman, and Katie Couric.

I also advise media and tech companies and military and government agencies, serve on boards of directors, and teach graduate media studies. I’m an avid pilot and love any content relating to aviation and space.
