Profile Information

What special skills do you have?
I worked as a comedy writer and creative director of a comedy entertainment company in Manhattan for 8 years, and as Editor-in-Chief of the comedy content website it owned. I wrote and pitched original TV and film scripts, worked as a comedic punch-up writer on film scripts already in development at studios/production companies and wrote for standup comics.

I also completed all levels of training at the Upright Citizens Brigade Comedy Theatre in NYC (founded by Amy Poehler), including their improv comedy, sketch comedy performance, and sketch comedy writing programs and performed with my NYC comedy group regularly at the theatre.

I also draw (think Jim Henson Dark Crystal/Fraggle Rock/Labyrinth-type creatures and places).
What skills can you teach?
Comedy writing (for plays, short sketches, stand up comedy, and TV and film scripts.

Also could teach improv and sketch comedy acting in a group setting.

Mission and Purpose

Fishbon’s Purpose:
Fishbon's purpose is to provide a forum, education and support for creative collaboration, mentorship and the visceral experience of visual, aural and performance-based art.  It is also to provide exhibition media for the artists and their art forms.

Fishbon’s Mission:
Fishbon's mission is to encourage collaboration between artists, technologists, writers, designers, performers and participants to create unique, real-time, compelling aesthetic experiences that speak to contemporary audiences.  Fishbon believes the synergy (sharings of perspectives and skills) made possible in a collaborative space creates a unique and special context for art.  By providing context, physical infrastructure, tools, mentoring support and encouragement for creative collaboration, Fishbon is an experiential incubator for emerging cooperative working models.  Much more about the process experience than final product, Fishbon creates a diverse "interactive" learning community that would be difficult to achieve in isolated individual working environments.

Fishbon is a 501 (c) (3) arts organization
